DEATH TOLL CLIMBS AS FLORENCE POURS ON THE RAINWith rivers rising toward record levels, thousands of people were ordered to evacuate for fear the next few days could bring th e most destructive round of flooding in North Carolina history.

Theyre preparing for the day when automated vehicles will see dedicated lanes and take over highways, when Floridas population grows from 21 million people now to 34 million or more residents by 2070. Some of the changes are here today,Ž Smith said, citing how some automobiles feature the ability to parallel park themselves. Meanwhile, GPS devices replaced AAA maps, and then pretty quickly, apps on your phone replaced your suddenly antiquated GPS.Ž Technology and other advances, along with a transforming population and climatic setbacks, are going to keep altering life in Southwest Florida in the coming decades. In Englewood, Don Musilli hopes to build his first home utilizing 3D printing technologies early next year. Babcock Ranch developer Syd Kitson intends for the ranch to be the first solar-powered town in the country. Its expected that future Babcock Ranch residents will get around their community in autonomous, driverless electric vehicles. Even the school bus is self-operated. Brick-and-mortar stores are taking a hard hit from online shopping, but Smith can envision a future with the resurgence of downtowns repopulated with specialty boutique shops. Punta Gorda is among the communities trying to position itself for that time.REALITY CHECK:BRAVING SOUTHWEST FLORIDAS NEW FUTURE Can the boom continue past the hurdles ahead?

THE BOTTOM LINEThis is the 8th part of an ongoing series this year examining the surging growth in Charlotte County and North Port, and whats ahead for the region and the state. Long overlooked as other parts of the Peninsula near and far exploded and nestled between Sarasota and Fort Myers, the area has remained one of the few relatively undiscovered coastal spots. But thats quickly changing as Floridas Final Frontier experiences a development boom.BOOM | 4STAFF REPORTCarl Berryman was arrested for shooting his neighbors house 25 times earlier this month. He bonded out of jail Thursday, returned to his neighborhood along Erie Court, and then that neighbor, John Krug, fatally shot Berryman Friday morning, according to North Port police. There was no stand your groundŽ in this case of seconddegree murder, police announced later that night. Krug, 65, cooperated with police, they said after investigating Fridays fatal shooting. But most of whatever Krug may have told them was redacted from a report police released late Friday night to the media. What is known is that Berryman, 62, died at the scene and according to police, he had a gunshot wound to the back of his shoulder. Its not immediately clear what may have transpired between Berryman and Krug on Friday. But the redacted police report does say that before Berryman was let out of jail Thursday he was served with a no contact order protecting the defendants (Krugs) family.Ž North Port police told television station WFLA that they had seized all the guns they knew about from Berryman.By ANNE EASKERSTAFF WRITEROf all local law enforcement agencies, the Charlotte County Sheriffs Of“ ce currently has the highest number of open positions, with 32 vacancies, including 18 in law enforcement and 14 in the detention bureau. People arent running into this profession right now,Ž Sheriff Bill Prummell has said several times in recent months, discussing the struggle to “ ll open positions with quality candidates. According to Prummell, and other local agencies, dif“ culty hiring has been a problem across the state and nation. At one point in the past year, the North Port Police Department had 17 vacancies for police of“ cers and 24 total open positions in the agency. Now, theyre at seven of“ cer vacancies and eight for civilian staff. We are seeing agencies that are experiencing a large number of of“ cers and command staff retiring all at the same time due to when they were all hired back in the late 80s and 90s,Ž said North Port Spokesperson Josh Taylor. Back then, agencies were hiring like crazy. History is now repeating itself when those same of“ cers are now leaving due to retirement across the state.Ž The Punta Gorda Police Department is currently fully staffed for sworn positions, but Public Information Of“ cer Lt.

Postmaster: Please send address changes to the SUN, 23170 Harborview Road, Charlotte Harbor, Florida 33980-2100.By BETSY CALVERT and LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERSThe county has given Allegiant Travel Company a second three-week extension to address issues with the “nal site plan for Sunseeker resort. The development is anticipated to sprawl across more than 20 acres of Charlotte Harbor waterfront. The request for an extension came last week, said Charlotte County Zoning Of“cial Shaun Cullinan. The current extension was due to expire Tuesday, two days before Allegiant announced its “nancing and cost plans for the project on Thursday. A major outstanding issue with the site plan remains the public easement for a 2,150-foot harbor walk. Cullinan said Friday that he is not aware that the issues have been resolved. Calls Friday to Allegiant for comment were not immediately returned, but company of“cials have previously said they are working out legal technicalities with the county. The 90-foot towers are an apparent hallmark of the resort architecture. They require public access to the harborwalk, according to the rules of the Charlotte Harbor Redevelopment Authority. Without that easement, Allegiant could build up to 35 feet above the flood level, Cullinan said. Allegiant told its investors in a presentation Thursday morning that the company will build roughly 680 units, which is less than half of the 1,495 sought in their unapproved site plan. Among other changes, Sunseeker will now be completed in phases „ the first with two condo towers. Originally, plans stated there would be a total of nine towers, but now the website states any additional condo towers would be built in subsequent phases.Ž Cullinan said he was not aware of any issues with Sunseekers scaledback plan. Were trying to digest it all ourselves,Ž he said. The construction completion date has also been pushed back to fall 2020. Previous reports stated the resort planned to open in Feb. 2020. The resort will feature 17 original restaurants, bars and cafs ranging from a vibrant Italian style coffee shop, to a sports bar over”owing with TVs, to a steakhouse styled for your special occasion,Ž the Suneeker website states. Non-guests will also be welcome at Sunseekers restaurants and stores.Email: lhardaway@sun-herald.comCharlotte County gives Sunseeker more time with plansTimeline slows for planned Charlotte Harbor resort FROM SUNSEEKER RESORTA recent rendering of the planned Sunseeker Resort along Charlotte Harbor.

Page 4 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018FROM PAGE ONEChanging landscapeTampa will be the beating heart,Ž Smith said of the impact of future development in Southwest Florida. He wouldnt be surprised if the coastal corridor from Fort Myers north through Charlotte County and North Port to Tampa grows much like the East Coast corridor has from Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach. A lot of undeveloped (properties) between Fort Myers and Sarasota is fair game,Ž Smith said. Floridas demographics will also change, becoming more diverse statewide. The young people now „ particularly the generation coming up behind the Millennials, known as Generation Z „ will be less resistant to accelerated change, Smith said. They are the ones who grew up in the digital age and teethed on smartphones. In its Post-Millennial Behavior and LongRange PlanningŽ report, FSU Florida Planning and Development Lab examined the impacts of the post-Millennial generation „ those born between 1996 and 2016 „ on the state including transportation. They now make up 25 percent of Floridas population. In addition to being relatively numerous, they are signi“cantly more ethnically diverse than previous generations, especially with respect for people identifying themselves as Hispanic,Ž the report noted. Generation Z may be the last generation nationwide with a majority of white individuals. As far as their perspective, the report states, Generation Z were still learning what values they hold when they saw their parents and communities struggle to make ends meet in the Great Recession. For many in Generation Z, the “rst president they will remember will have been an African-American. These are experiences that affect the development of values and behaviors of generations in indelible ways, and are a valid indicator of their future needs.Ž Generation Z is also the generation which grew up post 9/11 and with school shootings. Safety is a prime concern for them, including transportation and bike safety. In addition, theyre a generation environmentally aware, concern and supportive of preservation. Their principles tend to collide with some of the massive development going on today and the build “rst, ask questions later mentality that has contributed to ecological disasters like Southwest Floridas current red tide crisis.Bracing for tomorrowIf we continue developing land the way we do now, more than a third of the state will be paved over by 2070,Ž said Ryan Smart, president of the advocacy group 1000 Friends of Florida. Millions of acres of agricultural and natural lands … essential to maintaining our quality of life, jobs, water supply and more … will be lost.Ž Already, businesses have closed or cutback and jobs disappeared as many summer tourists bypassed Southwest Floridas noxious beaches that were littered with dead “sh, deceased dolphins, lifeless turtles and other suffocated sea creatures. Even birds not poisoned by rancid red tide seem to have ”own elsewhere, and locals drove to other parts of the Sunshine State to enjoy its shores. Scientists widely agree that increasing runoff from the continuing growth, coupled with other factors such as leaky septic tanks and farm and lawn fertilizer, is playing a lethal role. That development is having other impacts. The 1000 Friends group with the University of Florida and Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services issued its Florida 2070Ž report with particular focus on future growth and impacts on water demands. In 2010, Floridians consumed 3 billion gallons of water statewide. That could more than double by 2070. The report recommends more compact development, including in“ll, mixeduse development and redevelopment sensitive to existing communities.Ž Water conservation and Florida-friendly landscaping should be not only promoted but adopted. If enough people conserve water, community infrastructure costs associated with supplying water and addressing sewage and stormwater can be signi“cantly reduced, resulting in tax savings,Ž the report concluded. But what could reduce the water demand, possibly to as little as a 20-percent increase over todays usage and protect the states water resources, is the promotion of conservation land acquisitions, development of wildlife corridors, and incentives for agricultural land use, according to the 1000 Friends of Florida.ResilienceA lot is coming at Southwest Floridians, and climate change is at the core of much of it. The effect on weather and life will be noticeable. In fact, its already happening today, with increasing brush “res, record-breaking-hurricanes and other impacts. The magnitude and pace of change “ts with the Future Shock idea of dealing with an overwhelming amount of change in a compressed time period that places stress on individuals, cities, regions, states and societies,Ž said William Butler, associate professor at Florida State University Department of Urban and Regional Planning. Florida is already a hazard prone state, and climate change makes our existence here that much more tenuous requiring increasing commitment to maintain our resi lience in the face of complexity and uncertainty associated with climate change and its impacts on our natural and built environment.Ž What this will do to continued migration to Southwest Florida isnt known. But new research this year shows the risk of sea level rise is chipping away at home values. Jesse Keenan, a professor with Harvards Graduate School of Design, said his work is the “rst dollars-and-cents indicator that climate change has begun affecting the real estate market. His team reviewed sales of more than 100,000 homes in Miami-Dade County from 1971 to 2017 and found that the lower elevation houses gained value slower than higher elevation homes. That gap grew even wider after 2000, which Keenan said is when sunny day ”ooding became more frequent in South Florida. It really stood out that low elevation properties essentially serve now as inferior investments,Ž Kennan told the Miami Herald. Its hard to argue its not climate change.Ž Some have argued that snowbirds and future residents wont want to go much further south than the higher ground of the North Central region, generally an 11-county inland area anchored by Gainesville, which would also serve as an escape for climate migrants from the Peninsulas increasingly watery basement. A report in the scientific journal Nature Climate Change “nds that up to 13 million people, with up to half of those in Florida, could be forced to adapt or ”ee their homes if seas rise six feet by 2100 as many scientists project. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity has concluded that Charlotte Harbor could rise by nearly four feet in that time. In the Nature Climate Change study, FSU demographer Mathew Hauer predicted about 3.5 million people alone moving out of Lee, Pinellas, Dade and Broward counties after a population surge that has lasted well-over 100 years, according to the Huf“ngton Post. Florida has gone from the middle of the pack with more than 2 million total residents halfway through last century, almost the same as Iowa at the time, to more than 21 million now, the third largest state. In that same period, Iowa has picked up 500,000 more residents. Meanwhile, the North Central Region is noted for its protection from sea-level rise, freshwater resources, mild climate and quality indicators, such as more educated residents and various college options, according to environmental scientist Stephen Mulkey, advisor to former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist. Joyce DiBenedettoColton considers herself one of the early climate change migrants, leaving for the Gainesville corridor from her South Florida job as an instructor and administrator focused on environmental sustainability. She and others tracking climate change and sea-level rise predict that she will be followed by many others. People will not move unless they are forced, and for me, sea-level rise was a good enough reason,Ž DiBenedetto-Colton said. I believe North Central Florida will be an attractive option.Ž Rolling Stone magazine this year proclaimed the welcome to the age of climate migrationŽ after 2017s string of climate disasters: six big hurricanes in the Atlantic, wild“res in the West, horri“c mudslides and high-temperature records breaking all over the country. More than 1 million Americans deserted their homes including 300,000 Puerto Ricans who came to Charlotte and Sarasota counties and the rest of Florida. Progress toward averting the issues the state now faces started coming to a halt as President Reagan symb olically removed the solar panels off the White House upon his election more than three decades ago. During the time, somewhat under the radar, there had been momentum for the U.S., in its past role as world leader, taking on the conditions contributing to the earths warming and bringing major powers together on a binding, global framework to reduce carbon emissions, according to last months New York Times investigative blockbuster, Losing Earth.Ž Before those efforts disintegrated, scholars and scientists said there was still time to avert disaster. Today, while theres no turning back, groups say we can do something to reduce the pain in Florida and make life, as it is, a little more comfortable. For example, last week, the Center for American Progress was the latest to focus on the topic, putting together a hefty blueprint for the state after an extensive investigation and calling for a Florida Future Fund to leverage private sector capital with public dollars and to exponentially expand investment in needed infrastructure solutions.Ž Florida state leaders have an opportunity to support investments in innovative and future-ready transportation, energy systems, and ”ood protections so that communities can better withstand sea level rise and extreme weather threats,Ž the report said. The demand in Florida is high for future-ready community development and infrastructure projects that will r educe extreme weather and ”ooding damages, lower local air pollution, cut energy bills for households and business, and improve economic mobility. Yet Florida still faces a wide infrastructure investment gap that has left much of this demand unmet.Ž And with all the dif“culties ahead for local residents and the rest of the state, the center provided a glimmer of hope at the end of its extended report: With the cost of living increasing across the state and the majority of Floridians living without emergency savings, projects supported by the Florida Future Fund would expand economic opportunities for all Floridians and help people keep more of their hard-earned money in their wallets. By creating a Florida Future Fund to support new, long-term, and 21st century infrastructure solutions, state leaders will improve the lives of every Floridian in ways that count: protecting public health and safety, communities, and businesses from future threats.Ž Sun Regional Editor Phil Fernandez and the University of Floridas Project Blue Ether research contributed to this report.BOOMFROM PAGE 1 BUZZKILL: CLIMATE CHANGE AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDAWhat William Butler, Associate Professor, Florida State University Department of Urban and Regional Planning, says about: Sea levels Accelerating sea level rise has become the poster child of climate change, and it will be quite impactful.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018Corrupt president, corrupt partyEditor: While a corrupt president is certainly as much of a consequence of a corrupt party as it is a corrupted electorate, it is the party that ultimately must bear the responsibility. The electors blatant silence and failure to respond to undemocratic behavior among leaders and supporters may also pave the way for candidates like our current president to get elected. Although corrupt politicians must also be held accountable, we must not forget that it is the party in power who put him the re, and who now keeps him there. Like the power behind the head of most countries, both good and bad, gives strength and support to their leaders, so it is with ours, and a Congress of inaction is as consequential as one that supports. Therefore, we must not allow an impotent Congress to keep in place a president who knows no bounds, and threatens our democracy. Vote for our countrys future, as well as the candidate.David L. DeGeorge North PortTurn o phones during board meetingsEditor: Simple solution to Sarasota School Board members dispute: No cell phone calls during school board meetings.Ž An adult can be designated to take calls from dependents and children can be given the contact number. I respect both Eric and Zucker, especially Eric serving without compensation.Alice C. Olejnik North PortParking ordinance will harm cityEditor: The North Port City Commission passed a city-wide parking ordinance that will impact the quality of life of every neighborhood within the citys boundaries. This commission has compromised the integrity and overall stability of a city that is striving to reach its full potential. Our commissioners have an obligation to ensure safeguards are in place to protect, preserve and enhance our neighborhoods, not add insult to injury and expand upon a parking ordinance that will have unforeseen and possibly devastating consequences. It is presently unclear why the North Port City Commission has taken a position that is contrary to what many residents foresee: a city off course and going in the wrong direction. They no longer seem to be advocating for positive change to improve the citys image. They are taking North Port into another place where slowly eroding living conditions will escalate dramatically under this citywide parking ordinance. With the stakes so high, this parking ordinance will eventually erode property values, not to mention the adverse environmental impact it will have on the unimproved right-of-way plus the overall well being of a city that is desperately trying to ”ourish.Je Scott North PortWeather station a great giftEditor: Im sure the sailing and power boating public in this area is grateful to the Punta Gorda Boaters Alliance and Ron Jones for the marker 4 weather station. However, as John Welsh so accurately stated, the Learn to Sail operation at Bayfront is especially thankful to have this vital information in real time. Jones overcame a host of equipment and siting problems to get this station working, and our thanks to him and his helpers for persevering. Thanks again for a job well done.David Blair Punta GordaIssues found with POAEditor: Burnt Store Meadows residents: Can someone tell me, that when you make a complaint to the POA, is their standard answer that this is a civil matter and they can do nothing about it? Have you ever heard of a POA giving someone permission to park on your private property? To the fire department, do you let your employees park their cars and trucks on tall weeds and grass because they want to? If not, I may have someone arrested just to teach them a lesson. Since you people and POA dont care if you pollute the air I have to breathe, even though Im in my home and on oxygen 24/7. When you get your notice to appear, you can assume that I have filed criminal charges against both parties. You can now explain why you allow your friends and family to park on a lot, even though you were told not to park on that lot due to all the complaints from other people. The POA can explain how they legally gave you permission to park on someone elses private property. We all need to help our POA to steer them in the direction of making this a nice and safer place to live for everybody, and hopefully it wont take three years to do it.Richard Boyer Punta GordaThe Bible is a bloodthirsty bookEditor: In God we trust,Ž when governor Rick Scott finds out that his bible God promotes rape, self mutilations, infanticide, the killing of gay people, hatred for parents, obscene performances, along with virgins being used as war booty, he will regret that he should have read the Old Testament first before signing his education „ related bills into law. If this Bible God is to be a role model, shouldnt he be opposed to wars, violence, dishonesty, killings and massacres? Who is it that Christians are horrified at school shootings, but not horrified at all of the bloodthirsty horror stories in their Bible? The Jewish priests who fabricated this deity did so for race-glorification and claimed themselves as the chosen people of God.Ž Before this war GodŽ could be introduced into the New Testament, he had to be cleaned up and sanitized and then and only then did he love the whole world,Ž John 3:16. He now turns from a war God into a loving God. The Bible is a most bloodthirsty and perilous book that young school children should not read or trust this vindictive, evil, war God at all. The Bible God is s mythical deity and a Maginot LineŽ of comfort when all is well, but useless in time of trouble. One of the evils of religion is that it promotes sin and wrongdoing, just as the Catholic church hid decades of sex abuse by priests.Lawrence Mraz ArcadiaTrump battling Left, fifth columnEditor: All should understand that Obamas administration significantly contributed to the Trump administrations remarkable economic success. The sluggish economy of the Obama era was arguably due to his anti-business, expanded regulatory state and several anti-growth policies. Trump lifted the Obama boot from the throat of our economy by eliminating thousands of stifling regulations, thus releasing a burst of pent-up growth. Therefore, Obama policies made Trump look better. Currently, Trump is negotiating with China, Mexico, Canada, Japan and the E.C. to achieve fairer trade agreements. This process requires a heavy hand at times and may result in the gnashing of teeth by our trading partners, but these negotiations are necessary and long overdue. It appears obvious to me that Trump is a once in a lifetime president as he is actually delivering on his campaign promises. How unique! He is battling the Democrats, a largely left leaning MSM, a deep stateŽ entrenched government and a fifth column of never Trumpers.Ž When one adds in a corrupt poorly led Justice Department one wonders how he has accomplished so much so quickly. The left can take heart that we are unlikely to again see anyone like Trump during this century. The rest of us should be troubled to realize this unique president with his controversial style and incredible energy was our nations best hope before we slip into a corrupt and stifling socialist abyss. A president elected because many of us realized our country was losing what had made us great.Carl A. Hansen Punta GordaVIEWPOINTPublisher „ Glen Nickerson Executive editor „ Jim Gouvellis Editorial page editor „ Stephen Baumann Commentary Editor „ John Hackworth Email letters to OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OUR POSITION: Charlotte County Schools are certainly not alone in seeking taxpayers help to boost performance. It is pitiful that state lawmakers in Tallahassee find it easier to burden local school districts with the challenge of funding education than shouldering their responsibility to do so. Despite claims you hear from state legislators about record funds being handed out, Florida does not dedicate enough money to pay for all the costs involved with education. As a matter of fact, Floridas funding for schools ranks 42nd in the nation for spending per student according to Local school districts are more and more turning to special taxes to make up the difference. You have to look no further than Sarasota County for evidence. For 16 years now the residents of that county have overwhelmingly supported a special tax that brings in more than $50 million to boost teachers pay and fund technology in the classroom. Sarasota charges a 1 mill tax „ $1 for every $1,000 value of a piece of property. In November, Charlotte County schools will ask voters to do the same. Only that 1 mill of tax will bring in only about $15 million because of lower property values and less property to tax. Charlotte and Sarasota are not alone in seeking help from local homeowners and business owners. According to a story in the Tampa Bay Times by Marlene Sokol, 10 local education funding measures on Primary Election ballots in Florida passed last month. The citizens recognize that the Florida public schools are the backbone of our future,Ž said Andrea Messina, executive director of the Florida School Boards Association and a former member of the Charlotte County School Board. They want to invest in quality schools. If we let our educational system and our facilities decay, that will have a negative impact on Floridas economy and on the citizens of Florida,Ž she told Sokol. The funding problems did not begin this year „ or even since Republicans took over Tallahassee. No, they began when the Class Size Amendment forced local districts to hire more teachers and build more classrooms. But since then, lawmakers have piled on by placing mandates on local school districts without providing the funding to pay for them. Among those mandates and expenses is a multitude of tests „ most of which require computers. Local school districts have had to come up with initiatives to meet the challenge. One-third of Floridas school districts either have a local option property tax, like Sarasota, or impose a sales tax. Under state law, the property tax can be used to boost teacher salaries and pay for enhanced classroom activities and equipment. A sales tax can only be used to fund capital expenses „ like new school buildings. The scenario is not a healthy one. Even if a county is successful in passing a special tax, a neighboring county with higher taxable property values can still use its advantage in funding to raid the poorer county for teachers. That is exactly what is happening here as more and more teachers leave Charlotte County for Sarasota County. The only real solution is for Tallahassee to live up to its responsibility to properly fund education in Florida. We wont hold our breath.Local tax new norm for schools HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 E/N/C Page 7HOUSTON „ Nationally, the Democratic Party, which gave indispensable assistance (Basket of deplorablesŽ!) to the election of todays president, seems intent (Impeach!Ž; Abolish ICE!Ž; Free stuff!Ž, I am Spartacus!Ž) on a repeat performance. Here, however, in the 7th Congressional District, in what might turn out to be the years most instructive House race, Democrats seem serious about winning, and if they do with Lizzie Fletcher, they will have a template for 2020 nationally. One of her handouts inexplicably describes her as a “erce advocate,Ž as though Americans are experiencing a “erceness de“cit and pine for a ferocity infusion. Actually, she speaks with the measured precision of an attorney who has worked at a major law “rm (Vinson & Elkins) and who is ”uent in the business school patois (The delta last time was ... ) of her corporate clients. The ginger group Our Revolution, which is a residue of Bernie Sanders 2016 presidential campaign, supported a candidate to her left in the seven-candidate primary, perhaps because Fletcher would not genu”ect at the requisite altars: She has endorsed neither a single-payer health care system nor Medicare for all nor putting lipstick on socialism, least of all a ban „ this is Texas, for Petes sake „ on off-shore drilling. In New York and then in Massachusetts, two 10term House incumbents, both males, have been defeated in primaries by females running to the incumbents left in safe Democratic districts. Here, in a district held by Republicans for the past half-century, a woman is not far behind „ in some polls, within the margin of error „ the Republican incumbent. A “fth-generation Houstonian, Fletcher is striving to become just the fourth person to represent the current iteration of the 7th district, which she describes as leaning purple but still light pink.Ž It was recon“gured in 1966, when it was won by 42-year old George Herbert Walker Bush, who still lives in it. After his two terms, it was held for 15 terms by Bill Archer, who rose to the chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee. His successor, John Culberson, 62, wants to let Texans run TexasŽ but is not a conscientious objector to non-Texas money he can send home from his perch on the Appropriations Committee. His conservatism had a Trumpian tang six years before Trump came down his towers escalator: In 2009, Culberson co-sponsored a birtherŽ bill that would have required presidential candidates to prove that they are natural-born citizens. A legislative lifer, Culberson won the “rst of seven two-year terms in the state House in 1986 at age 30. He won his 2016 congressional re-election with 56 percent of the vote. If the best kind of generals are lucky ones, Fletcher, 43, is that kind of candidate. The tight Senate race between incumbent Ted Cruz and Democratic Rep. Beto ORourke, who has already visited all 254 Texas counties, is apt to energize Democratic turnout statewide. Culberson perhaps did nothing untoward when he sold a biotech stock „ the one concerning which Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., has been indicted for insider trading „ 10 days before the shares lost 99 percent of their value, but the optics are not optimal. And while their city was still prostrate from Hurricane Harvey, Houstonians heard the presidents stupefying statement that the Coast Guard had had to save 16,000 people because they went out in their boats to watch the hurricane.Ž It has been a while since Texas was, in Gene Autrys lyric, Where the longhorn cattle feed/On the lowly gypsum weed.Ž It is the 15th-most urban state (84.7 percent), with the nations fourth-, seventh-, ninth-, 11thand 15thmost populous cities (Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin and Fort Worth). Hillary Clinton mopped the ”oor with Donald Trump in nearly all, which is one reason Trump carried 21 states by larger margins than his 9 percentage-point victory in Texas. A Fletcher victory might be an early tremor of a political earthquake. In presidential politics, Democrats have three large, safe states „ California, New York and Illinois „ with a combined 104 electoral votes, 38.5 percent of 270. Texas, the Republicans only such state, today has 38 electoral votes and after the 2020 census will have two, perhaps three more. If it turns purple, every year divisible by four will be, for Republicans, a year of living dangerously. Nationally, Fletchers party seems determined to emulate Yasser Arafats description of the PLO: They never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. Here the party seems serious about winning. George Wills email address is georgewill@ Texas, a Democratic template for national victory in 2020 WEEK IN REVIEW George WILLWashington Post Former President Barack Obama embraced Medicare for allŽ last week as he rallied Democrats for the midterm elections. Critics pounced, charging that this rhetorical ”ourish proved that he always meant to use Obamacare as a stalking horse for government-run health care. It didnt. Obamas version of Medicare for all would be an option for people under 65 to enroll in a basic Medicare plan with the same choices that seniors now have to buy supplemental private insurance for more coverage. By contrast, a government-run plan, also known as singlepayer, would replace private insurance and Obamacare. Yet Republicans have grabbed hold of Obamas phrase for an attack line against Democratic candidates in the “nal eight weeks before the Nov. 6 elections. When it comes to single-payer health care, Barack Obama was against it before he was for it,Ž a Las Vegas Journal Review editorial charged on Monday. The Journal Review is owned by the billionaire gambling mogul Sheldon Adelson, a Republican activist and campaign contributor. Thats a political hit job, intended to sow confusion, that Democrats will have to repel. Substantively and politically, advocacy of single-payer health care is perilous for Democrats. A purely government-run system could require trillions of dollars of tax increases and, despite widespread complaints about the health-care system, many Americans would rebel at the prospect of losing their existing private coverage. The bene“ts, including universal coverage and increased ability to control health-care costs, are harder to explain persuasively than the impact of big tax hikes. Republicans are already on the defensive over their unsuccessful and now unpopular efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Obamas signature domestic achievement. The current Republican threat to repeal an Obamacare rule that bans discrimination by insurance companies against people with preexisting medical conditions is proving to be a political bonanza for Democrats all over the country. Only where Democratic candidates are openly supporting a single-payer plan are Republicans on the offensive. A Medicare-for-all option is far more appealing politically. Though speci“cs remain vague, it wouldnt entail huge tax increases and would be modeled on the familiar and popular Medicare program. Unlike a singlepayer plan that forces people into a government system, Medicare-for-all offers lots of choices,Ž said Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the architects of the Affordable Care Act and now vice provost and professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. In an interview this week, he noted that the private insurance supplemental plans now comprise about one-third of Medicare and are well liked by patients, the insurance industry and the medical community. Obamas Sept. 7 speech at the University of Illinois was a blistering assault on President Donald Trump and his administration, breaking a year-and-a-half of restraint in the face of incessant and misleading attacks from Trump. Still, Obama counseled against the increasingly confrontational politics favored by some of his liberal friends. He said Democrats this year are running on good new ideas like Medicare for all, giving workers seats on corporate boards, reversing the most egregious corporate tax cuts to make sure college students graduate debt-free.Ž These proposals arent new, and there arent enough egregiousŽ and reversible corporate tax cuts to free up money to pay for all college students to graduate debt-free. But they are mainstream Democratic ideas, not a call for a the federal government to run the entire health-care system. Medicare-for-all is not, as the right-wing North Carolina Congressman Mark Walker charged this week, an admission of Obamacares failure.Ž Its a way to build on Obamacare, just as President George W. Bushs prescription drug bene“ts for seniors built on Medicare. But when it comes to the health-care politics of 2018, struggling Republicans are desperate. Albert R.

Page 8 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 When they released the redacted report late Friday, North Port police said they wouldnt be available for any questions until Monday, and a city police spokesperson didnt immediately respond Saturday to questions from the Sun The police report shows, though, that the handgun that Krug allegedly used to kill Berryman was found by police on the ground by his body on a driveway. But that driveway wasnt Berrymans. It was Krugs, according to the police report. Both men lived on Erie Court, off Elyton Drive. Its a short roadway with a roundabout at the end where Berryman lived at 3597 Erie Court, and Krug resides at 3568 Erie Court. The report states the crime location was 3568 Erie Court. Based on facts and circumstances of the incident, along with something else „ which is redacted from the police report „ it was determined that this incident did not meet stand your ground law,Ž the report states. Instead, this was a second-degree murder that was not premeditated, according to North Port police. Thats because, according to the report, Berryman had turned away from Krug before being shot. And police determined the victim presented no immediate threat to the defendant and therefore, the defendant demonstrated a depraved mind without regard for human life by shooting the victim,Ž the police report states. It wasnt just Krugs house that Berryman had shot at in the neighborhood. Police noted in the report that Berryman had shot at another neighbors residence “rst, before “ring off 25 rounds at Krugs home on Sept. 7. And at least some neighbors told the Sun Friday after Berryman was killed that they had been fearful of him for their safety. Deputy Chief (Chris Morales) gave me his card and said to call him if anything else happens,Ž another neighbor on Erie Court, Richard Dickman, told the Sun Friday after the shooting. I made copies and gave them to all the neighbors... But Im glad hes dead so he couldnt shoot my kids. I was concerned when he (Berryman) was out the next day (after being arrested). Its a very quiet neighborhood. We all look out for each other.Ž Krug was being held at the Sarasota County Jail Friday night on a $200,000 bond for the second-murder charge. That was after he was arrested Friday at the North Port Police Department where he had agreed to meet and talk with them after the shooting, records show. A message left on Krugs phone number listed in the police report was not immediately returned Saturday. According to jail records online, Krug has an Oct. 19 arraignment date. A criminal case against him for this incident was not immediately appearing Saturday afternoon on the Sarasota County Clerk of Circuit Court website so its not clear if he has an attorney.

The agency just recently hired nine new of“cers. The economy is strong so there are plenty of job opportunities for people to choose from,Ž he said. Also, there has recently been a good amount of negative sentiment against the profession nationwide, which likely has an impact on the number of people willing to begin a career in law enforcement.Ž CCSO Human Resources Director Kevin Ostrowsky said the number of employees leaving the agency has increased by 23 percent more than this time last year. Many are leaving for higher paying positions in todays economy, he said. The economy and availability of higherpaying jobs is something Renz believes is a contributing factor as well. Back in 2010, when the job market was struggling, agencies had far more applicants than they had open positions,Ž he said. Over the past several years agencies have found that it has been a struggle to get quali“ed individuals to even apply for open positions.Ž Recently, things seem to be stabilizing, Renz said, which seems to hold true across most local agencies. The Sarasota County Sheriffs Of“ce had 12 law enforcement vacancies and 10 corrections vacancies last year on Sept. 1, but this year, its down to 11 open sworn positions total. Spokesperson Kaitlyn Perez attributed SCSOs relatively low number of vacancies to the agencys quality reputation. We believe the sheriffs of“ce is a premier agency that facilitates topnotch training, provides high-quality equipment and maintains a strong reputation for professionalism, service, and respect,Ž Perez said. Renz said PGPD has relied on recruitment efforts such as good, old-fashioned visits to police academies, college campuses, technical schools, and military bases, as well as participation in career fairs and an increased use of social media and the internet to advertise positions.Ž Taylor said whats worked for NPPD has been twofold. First, the department has sponsored several people to go through the police academy and paid them as if they were working as of“cers while attending school. They also pay up to $47,154.34 starting salary for of“cers with experience. Our city has had a signi“cant pay raise for our of“cers,Ž he said. With the pay raise, we added a 15 percent above starting salary of of“cers with experience and that seems to have captured of“cers from nearby agencies to apply and work for our agency.ŽEmail: aeasker@sun-herald.comRECRUITFROM PAGE 1SWORN OFFICER VACANCIES PER AGENCYAgency Total officers Vacancies % Vacant Charlotte County Sheriffs Office 432 32 7.4% Sarasota County Sheriffs Office 641 11 1.7% Punta Gorda Police Department 37 0 0% North Port Police Department 109 7 6.4 IMAGE FROM MAPQUESTAccording to a report released Friday night by North Port police, the victim of a fatal shooting Friday morning, Carl Berryman, lived at 3597 Erie Court.

I had listed her home for sale, and that evening she was home alone. As she went out to her lanai, she was surprised by people walking around her secluded back yard. Her “ rst thought was to retreat inside to fetch her .38 before asking questions. Instead she demanded an explanation with a tone that conveyed her displeasure. Thats a good thing. Her husband is an advanced weapons trainer for the military; its reasonable to think hes taught her a few things. The strangers said they saw the for saleŽ sign in front. The owner pointed out her car was parked in the driveway, so they had to know someone was home. They replied that they came from a place where its common for neighbors to park on the driveway of their neighbors non-occupied homes. As if that werent shaky enough, the strangers then said they were interested in the house and wanted to come in and look around. The seller was right on target with her response. She gave them a solid no,Ž along with an admonition that if they were interested they needed to go through the proper channels by calling the name and number on the for-sale sign out front. We never did hear back from them. No surprise, there. I had a similar situation a few years ago. It was worse. In that case, the seller went out to the lanai to “ nd strangers poking around inside their lanai and looking through windows. Their explanation was that they saw the lock box on the front door, so they “ gured the home must be vacant. Huh? I know most people get this, but for the few who dont, owners who put their homes on the market are not relinquishing their privacy. But if you are a seller, its good to be prepared should you encounter a similar situation. And please, never, ever let these people in your home. If they are sincere buyers, they will go through the proper channels and the Realtors will pre-screen them. One of my sellers in a similar situation let his guard down. He let the strangers in because the male identi“ ed himself as a minister. That buyer did call me and placed the home under contract. But it did not end well. The day before the closing the buyer backed out with the explanation that The Lord had directed him down another path. However, there were no powers that could save his forfeited deposit.Power tipsOne advantage to todays electronics is that many of us can run our businesses remotely from any web-enabled location using smartphones and mobile devices. When Hurricane Irma struck last year, Deb and I were at a large home in Georgia with 3 other families. As Irma moved north into Georgia, it created power outages that were more widespread than those in Florida. Many of us spent time in our cars recharging our devices. We old-timers did it to keep our business lines open, while the millennials did it because they depend on their devices for life-support. Many homes today have UPS battery-backup systems, especially to keep computers running during power interruptions. It never occurred to any of us in the house that we could have plugged our phone rechargers into the UPS system rather than into our vehicles USB ports. And in case you missed it in this column last year, heres how to tell if the home youve evacuated from has experienced power interruptions. Thanks to FPLs new smart meters, you can log onto your own FPL dashboard on FPLs website. There, you can view an hour-by-hour summary of how much power your home has consumed. It even breaks it into the cost per hour. It is current to the previous day. Being able to view your hour-by-hour power status tells you when, and for how long, your refrigerator was off.

That was the employers problem „ except when the investments turned out to be insuf“cient to make the required pension payments, when it would suddenly become the retirees problem. But that was an uncommon aberration. This generation of retirees is much more likely to depend on de“ned-contribution plans, in which investments are under the control of the retiree. Whereas de“ned-bene“t plans promised payments for the retirees life span, however long that might be, de“ned-contribution plans leave the retiree with a nest egg of “nancial assets to be drawn on as the retiree, often with the advice of a “nancial adviser, considers prudent. Draw too much and you run out of money; draw too little and you needlessly impoverish yourself. Not all retirees face the challenge. Those who saved little or nothing during their working years and are wholly dependent on Social Security face an impoverished retirement, no matter what. At the opposite pole, those who have accumulated large amounts of assets can draw what they like without worrying about it. Spending more simply means leaving a smaller estate. The challenged retirees are those in between, who have assets that may or may not last through their life span, depending on how carefully they are managed and how long they live. In most cases, the assets held by challenged retirees are entirely or largely common stock because over long periods, investments in common stock have yielded the highest returns. The downside of having ones nest egg in common stock is that the returns are unstable and can be negative for extended periods. Somehow, challenged retirees must “gure out how to steer themselves safely between the Scylla of impoverishment from the premature depletion of assets and the Charybdis of unnecessary deprivation from excessive caution. To provide some guidance to that challenge, my colleague Allan Redstone has developed tables that, for a speci“ed nest egg amount and life expectancy, show the monthly draw amounts associated with estimated probabilities of nest egg depletion. The tables are based on an available database covering monthly rates of return on common stock during the period 1926-2012 and assume a constant annual in”ation rate of 2 percent. Here is an example. When retiree Jones stopped working at 64, he had a common stock nest egg valued at $1 million and a life expectancy of 20 years.

The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 E/N/C Page 3 OUR TOWN „ SUNCOAST HOMESinitial draw amount, based on 733 20-year periods during 1926-2012, was $8,951. The median rate of return that made this draw amount possible was 11.3 percent. If the same median historical return experience occurs over the next 20 years, and Jones lived exactly that long, he could draw $8,951 monthly (increasing at 2 percent per year), with the last check that closed his account arriving the month he died. But there is an estimated probability of 50 percent that $8,951 will turn out to be too high and he will run out of money. If he started out drawing $6,343, which requires a rate of return of 6.6 percent, the probability of running out drops to 20 percent. To reduce the risk of running out to 5 percent, he would have to reduce the initial monthly draw to $4,178, which requires a return of only 1.9 percent. There is the additional risk that he will live past his life expectancy. Extending the period to 25 years, the initial draw with 5 percent risk would be $3,741, requiring a rate of return of 2.9 percent. The uncertainties involved in managing investments support an industry of investment advisers. They have come up with the widely cited 4 percent rule,Ž which says that it is probably safe for a retiree to draw an amount every year equal to 4 percent of the current value of a stock portfolio. A weakness of the 4 percent rule is that the retiree does not know how much risk is involved, or the extent to which the risk would be increased by going to 4.5 percent, or reduced by going to 3.5 percent. However, the Redstone tables can “ll that gap. Applying the 4 percent rule to retiree Jones, the draw amount would be $3,333, which over 25 years carries a risk of running out of about 4 percent. Information on the probability that a speci“ed draw amount will result in the retiree running out of money does not make the process of deciding how much to draw any easier. On the contrary, basing the decision on probabilities is the dif“cult way. The easy way is to just accept the advisers recommendation. The capacity to generate a complete table of draw amounts and rates of return for a common stock nest egg of any size, organized by percentiles and periods, will be available on my website in a week or so.

Do we have to close? „ Anne A: Purchasing a new home pre-construction can be a great way to get all the designs, colors and features you want and to make the perfect home for your family in a trendy new community. For these reasons, along with a slick marketing team, these properties are usually in high demand. This, more than the wealth and experience of the developers, puts the buyers at a competitive disadvantage when negotiating the sales contract. Having reviewed hundreds of these contracts, I have found them to usually be extremely one-sided, allowing the seller to plan changes and delay while requiring the buyer to close on the purchase on very short notice. With these contracts, even more than most, make sure to read and understand all the “ne print and decide if you can live with the terms before signing and putting your large deposit into escrow. Most of these contracts will allow the builder to delay for a variety of reasons and will even allow it to deviate from the ”oor plan and speci“cations under certain circumstances. Look at the ”oor plan you were provided, and you will likely “nd small print advising that the plans were for illustrative purposes only and are subject to change. This is what you agree to when you sign the contract. I have seen many people purchase, own and love their new construction home. I am not telling you to avoid these deals, just to know exactly what you are getting into. The seller, just like you, is bound by what the contract says and can be held responsible for its breach. The relevant laws rely on full disclosure, so if developers hide something or outright lie, they can be held to task. To answer your question, you will need to review what you agreed to in the contract carefully. If the developer did not hide anything and lived up to the contract „ taking into consideration the exceptions, “ne print and all „ then you will need to move forward or lose your deposit. However, if it failed to live up to its promises, you should “nd a good attorney to hold them accountable. Gary M.

When you pay too much, you lose a little money that  s all. When you pay too little, sometimes you lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the job it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot it cant be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and, if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.

The new Dicks Sporting Goods store was of“cially opened Friday afternoon in Cocoplum at 18219 Tamiami Trail. Harvey was available for meet and greets with customers as they perused his merchandise in the store. I came to get stuff signed,Ž Alexis Knight, a 15-year-old from Port Charlotte said, and gestured to the sleeve of her T-shirt. I like “shing, I grew up with it in Florida. Hes nice.Ž Harveys apparel, which features artwork he paints, has been around since the 1980s. But his business goes beyond offering a wearable “shing shirt. The brand was probably the “rst with wearable “shing art,Ž he said. Weve done pretty well over the decades. Weve had tons of competition „ now you have to take it in stride but with us we have a give back to marine research efforts.Ž Harvey has his doctorate in “sh biology, which he uses as he oversees the Guy Harvey Research Institute. Its been a fun road,Ž he said. Some people would say I take on too much and should concentrate on just art because thats what Im known for. But I have a Ph.D. and you understand all the resource issues were facing. So it triggered all the research and conservation efforts.Ž As for Floridas current red tide issue, Harvey has said he has a few suggestions for lawmakers and fellow conservationists. All the issues with water management need to be “xed,Ž he said. Also the out”ow from Lake Okeechobee. Weve said quite a bit about it, but the ”ow of freshwater from the lake needs to be redirected south instead of east and west like it is now.

And my son is entrusted in the business side of it. Hopefully, Ill be able to take a step back in maybe “ve years.Ž For now, many North Port residents were eager to support Harvey and his brand in the newest store. Hes a great artist, great conservationist,Ž said Hunter Talbot, a Sarasota resident. I thought I would have to go to one of his places „ I didnt think I would be able to meet him so Im very thankful for this.ŽEmail: Guy Harvey kicks off store opening in Cocoplum SUN PHOTOS BY LAUREN COFFEY Guy Harvey signs photos for Tanner Talbot, a Sarasota resident.

By LIZ HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERFact-checking isnt just for the journalists anymore. With a fear of fake news running rampant on both sides of the political divide, technology consultant David Finster spoke to the Democratic Womens Club last week to discern real information from propaganda disguised as news. Our democracy requires voters to have truthful information, or we become mere puppets with a vote,Ž Finster said. The rapid impact of social media on peoples worldview not only causes the spread of fake information, but now citizens are more likely to unknowingly participate in this spreading of false information. Scientists estimate 59 percent of links that get shared on Twitter are not even clicked, according to a June 2016 study conducted by computer scientists from Columbia University and the French National Institute. Ideas have consequences,Ž Finster said. These ideas seep in.Ž Propaganda techniques can be frequently seen on social media, Finster said. The key to effective propaganda is isolation, simple repetitive messages and strong emotions. Furthermore, those tests that discern what Game of Thrones house youre in dont just get you a royal seat. The answers can be used to target speci“c advertisements to certain demographics. (I) was amazed at how vulnerable we all are, without even knowing,Ž said vice president Kimmie Correll. He showed us how easily almost anything we read can be hacked; distorting t he intentions of an advertiser or how an article from a well-known and trusted source can be changed.Ž Facebook uses 98 personal data points to target these ads, including the square footage of a users house, whether theyre a trendyŽ or soccerŽ mom or if a user is interested in the Olympics, fall football, cricket or Ramadan,Ž the Washington Post reported in August. Finster told participants to check the date, author, publisher and sources of an article before clicking share.Ž He also suggested using fact-checking sites such as Politifact, Snopes and He also encouraged users to search Google for unique phrases within articles to see if theyre true or not, or do a reverse image search to see if a photo has been fabricated or altered. Our elections are under threat from nefarious elements using the internet,Ž said treasurer Kay Blue. It is important for us to be vigilant as social media consumers and users.Ž I believe the best way to educate the voter is to give them some simple tools and inspire them to be curious,Ž Finster said. Aside from discussing the importance of fact-checking, the Democratic Womens Club discussed their treasury balance and funds theyve allocated for scholarships to high school students. The club is also in need of a temporary secretary for October and November.

Ken graduated from Pascal High School in Ft. Worth, Class of 1962. He served as a Military Policeman in the US Army from 1964 to1967. Ken met his beloved wife, Sarah Yealy, while in the Army and stationed at Fort Detrick in Maryland. They married in 1966. Once Ken and Sarah were married, Ken was transferred to Panama and stationed in the Canal Zone. Sarah accompanied Ken to Panama and this is where they met their life long and dearest friends, John and Susan Marto. After Ken was discharged from the Army, Ken and Sarah resided in Ft. Worth. Ken graduated from Texas Christian University in June 1969. In 1971 Ken and Sarah moved to Maryland and in 1972 their son Jason was born. Ken joined the Prince Georges County Police Department in Maryland in 1974. Ken was with the Police Department for 24 years and retired as a Sergeant in August 1998. He went to work as a FEMA Security Specialist from 2000 to 2012 and was stationed in New York City immediately following the attacks of September 11, 2001. Ken had numerous assignments with FEMA that took him all over the country to include the Islands of Chuuk in the south Paci“c. Ken had many passions in life to include golf, playing golf, watching golf, talking about golf, telling you how he was better than you at golf, wagering on golf, taking golf trips and having an adult beverage while doing all the above with golf. Ken also loved his Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Orioles and most dearly his TCU Horned Frogs. The thing truest in Kens heart was his family, friends and country. Ken Bogue could not have been a more loving, caring, giving protector of family and friends. Ken was so proud of his two wonderful and beautiful granddaughters, Ellie and Emma. Ken had a loving and truly meaningful relationship with his sister Annie (Stephan Bugenhagen), his step-mother Willie Mae and his daughter-in-law Karen. There is no description that can be put into words to describe the passion and love he had for Sarah and Jason. In April 2013 Ken received a double lung transplant. This was necessary due to injuries sustained during his deployment to New York City after September 11, 2001. Ken recovered well following the surgery and was able to enjoy many wine “lled vacations with Sarah. Ken and Sarah also enjoyed many trips to Maryland over the past “ve years to see Jason, Karen, Ellie and Emma. Ken never let these injuries de“ne him, he meted them head on and fought valiantly. His family and friends were amazed by his strength and resiliency. Ken will be truly missed by everyone. No family or friend gathering will ever be the same. Ken is survived by his wife of 52 years, Sarah Bogue; son, Jason Bogue; sister Annie Bogue; step-mother Willie Mae Bogue; daughter-in-law Karen Bogue; granddaughters; Ellie and Emma; and dear friends, John and Sue Marto.

Call (941) 206-1028 for rates. By DANIEL SUTPHINSTAFF WRITERBudget talks for “scal year 2019 in Punta Gorda will likely come to a close Monday. A special budget public hearing will be held at 5:01 p.m. at the City Council chambers, allowing city staff to present the “nal budget and “nal millage rate for the new “scal year, which begins October 1. The citys emergency ordinance proposes a “nal budget for “scal year 2018/2019 which constitutes appropriations and a revenue estimate in the amount of $100,319,785 (net of interfund eliminations is $92,587,404), according to the citys meeting agenda. City staff will also present a “nal millage rate of 3.1969 mills for Fiscal Year 2018/2019. The calculated rolledback rate for the City of Punta Gorda is 3.0360 mills. Although the millage rate is proposed to stay the same at 3.1969, it is considered a proposed tax increase, because it is higher than the calculated rolled-back rate 3.036,Ž City Communications Manager Melissa Reichert told the Sun earlier this month. The millage rate is the amount per $1,000 of property value that is used to calculate local property taxes. Assigned millage rates are multiplied by the total taxable value of the property in order to arrive at the property taxes. If approved, the resolution will be certi“ed and sent to the county assessor and collector. eTRIM compliance forms are then certi“ed to the department of revenue. TRIM is the timetable of the Truth in Millage Bill under Florida law. The adoption of an emergency ordinance is standard operating procedure for the city, according to Reichert. eTRIM is an internet-based system for completing and submitting documents for the states TRIM and maximum millage oversight process. Using this system, property appraisers are able to electronically certify value data to principal authorities in their counties. From there, Reichert said the citys budget will be uploaded to the FY 2019 chart of accounts so that departments and divisions can begin entering requisitions for procurement to begin their process for issuing new purchase orders for vendors to begin Oct. 1. Under Floridas TRIM requirements, the city provides budget hearing meetings for public input and for governing bodies of taxing authorities to state speci“c reasons for proposed changes in taxes and the budget. The city holds the meetings about the same time every year, and adopt the emergency ordinance to adopt the budget at the second budget hearing in September.

HARDAWAYSTAFF WRITERTurning from Burnt Store Road onto Tern Bay Boulevard reveals vacant lots full of brush, foliage and scattered riser pipes poking from long grass. But a single sign at the turn promises so much more. More than 2.6 square miles of vacant land along Burnt Store Road sold for $20 million to Lennar Homes in late July in hopes of building Heritage Landing Golf & Country Club, the sign indicated. Lennar has “ve communities planned for the land, according to their website. This includes estate homes, executive homes, manor homes, terrace condominiums and veranda condominiums. The new homes will start at $180,000 and everythings included,Ž the sign said. The more than 1,700acre property deed, or 204 parcels of land, was approved and sold to Lennar Homes LLC on July 31, according to Charlotte County Clerk of Courts documents. The previous owner was Tern Bay CDD Acquisitions LLC, an independent special district established to “nance, construct and acquire infrastructure for the community, according to their website. The zoning approvals that are in place are for residential development primarily with small commercial developments,Ž said Scott Campbell, the authorized signatory on the deed for Lerner Real Estate Advisors Inc., the sole manager of Tern Bay CDD Acquisitions LLC. Lennar Homes is the largest home construction company in the United States, building homes in 21 states, according to their website. (The land) was planned all along to be a residential development with some commercial,Ž Campbell said. Tern Bay CDD took back the land after a developer went into default in the subprime mortgage crisis in 2008. Since then, the company has talked to a number of developers and builders to “nd the right “t for the chunk of land. Attempts to reach Lennar Homes for comment were not immediately successful. Though the company has not announced when they are starting construction of the development, materials, ”ags and an enclosed cargo space sit near the entrance to the land.Email: lhardaway@sun-herald.comNew homes starting at $180,000?Residential development may come to Burnt Store Road A Sign informs passing vehicles of the impending development.

According to the World Health Organization, there were more than 40,000 cases of measles across Europe the “rst six months of 2018, nearly double the number recorded in all of last year and eight times the number in 2016. In this country, the numbers are not as alarming, but signi“cant nonetheless. As of Aug. 22, there were 124 con“rmed cases of measles in 22 states and the District of Columbia, six more than the total recorded in all of 2017. Pinellas County had three cases, the “rst appearance of measles there in 10 years. None of the three had been immunized, and thats the problem. In my 25 years of being a pediatrician, I have only seen one case of measles,Ž said Dr. Benjamin Helgemo of Port Charlotte, but with all kids who are not getting vaccinated, were going to see an outbreak like they have in other states.Ž There have been 18 cases in California as of Aug. 10, including a child who came down with the illness after visiting a foreign country. Last year, there were only 15 cases statewide.

This neurological disorder causes the brain to mis“re,Ž sending incorrect signals to muscles and causing them to contract repeatedly, twist and/or pull the affected area of the body. The disease can affect one area (focal) or the entire body (generalized). Dystonia may be inherited, caused by trauma, or by certain medications, but for most people the cause is unknown. According to the Dystonia Advocacy Network, there are at least 300,000 people in the U.S. who have dystonia, making it more common than Huntingtons disease, muscular dystrophy, and ALS.Ž The symptoms and treatments are as different as each individual. Many af”icted use medication along with botulinum toxin injections, trigger point injections, massage therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture, medication/relaxation techniques or homeopathic remedies to help ease the symptoms to have resemblance of what life was like before,Ž yet in most cases the pain is constant. Others are completely disabled. Although dystonia has been recognized for centuries, as recently as the 1970s, it was widely mistaken for a psychiatric disorder, not a neurological disorder. Modern dystonia research and clinical care only began in the 1980s and has since made remarkable progress. But movement disorders remain a very specialized “eld and most medical students may not learn about dystonia unless they specialize in neurology „ and neurology is an enormous “eld so even general neurologists cannot typically be expected to recognize and treat dystonia. A movement disorder specialist is a subspecialist within neurology,Ž said Jessica Feeley, Editor and Special Projects for the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation I was diagnosed with cervical dystonia this year. I had never heard of it, knew no one who had it and knew no one who knew anything about it. So off to Dr. GoogleŽ I went. Learning as much as possible about what it is and treatments available. Then the words there is not a cure.Ž My heart sunk. Looking for more information, I came across a Facebook support group, Dystonia Awareness. The group includes people with all types of dystonia who offer advice and personal stories. It is a cyberplace where you can go to not feel alone. Carrie Speckman, a member of the group, has suffered from generalized dystonia since the age of 7. She asked the group of 1,934 members to contact their state governors and county leaders for proclamations to help raise additional awareness for Dystonia Awareness Month in September. Mike (Delise) had posted a picture of the proclamation he had requested for his state of Michigan.

SCHAEFERTHE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRERThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a new warning Tuesday to two companies that are making unproven medical claims about the herbal product kratom. Kratom, derived from the leaves of a Southeast Asian tree that is part of the coffee family, has gained popularity in recent years. The FDA has said the active ingredient in kratom, mitragynine, is an addictive substance that acts on the brains opioid receptors. The FDA sent warning letters to Chillin Mix Kratom and Mitra Distributing over claims that the herbal product would relieve opium withdrawalsŽ and treats medical conditions including diarrhea, depression, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, stomach parasites, diverticulitis, anxiety and alcoholism. To date there have been no adequate and well-controlled scienti“c studiesŽ involving the use of kratom as a treatment for medical conditions or diseases in humans, the warning stated. Fraudulent health claims can pose serious health risks,Ž FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in the announcement. Consumers who rely on such products may not seek appropriate therapies and they may be at risk of overdose and death, he stated. The product is sold online, in gas stations and in smoke shops, and is typically brewed as a tea, chewed, smoked or ingested in capsules. It is banned in several countries including Australia, Denmark, Germany, Malaysia and Thailand, as well as in several U.S. states and municipalities.FDA issues new warning about unproven medical claims for Kratom TNS PHOTOKratom is an unregulated herbal product that has been linked to at least four deaths in the Philadelphia region. By JOE CARLSONSTAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS) After a series of computer security problems in medical devices, the Food and Drug Administration is taking steps to make sure companies do as much as possible to defend against hacking and other threats. FDA staff members are examining companies preparations for potential computer-hacking threats to devices that millions of Americans depend on, according to an audit report published Tuesday by the Health and Human Services Departments inspector general of“ce. Its a fairly good story in terms of what FDA is doing on the cybersecurity front. As we dug into their processes further, however, we identi“ed areas where there was room for improvement,Ž said Abby Amoroso, the San Francisco-based deputy regional inspector general who was team leader for the study. FDA of“cials welcomed the report, noting that they were already following most of its guidance and going beyond it in other aspects. The guidance involves having the FDA make changes to its internal processes to make sure it asks questions about medical device cybersecurity earlier in the device-approval process, and to ensure that such questions are asked uniformly when new device submissions are made. Many highand moderate-risk medical devices contain computers that can communicate with the outside world, such as infusion pumps that work with hospital IT networks, and implantable pacemakers that wirelessly communicate with devices at the bedside or in a doctors hand. Such communications are intended to make health care more accurate and safe, but computer hackers have shown that such devices can be hijacked to create problems. Although theres never been a documented computer attack on a medical device that led to intentional patient harm, ransomwareŽ attacks have shut down hospital computers and independent researchers say attacks on implanted devices may have gone undetected. The FDA has been increasing its cyber enforcement in recent years, starting in 2013 with the formation of a cybersecurity working groupŽ and the publication of rules in 2014 for how the FDA expects manufacturers to develop long-term plans for medical device cybersecurity. FDA guidelines say manufacturers should submit cybersecurity hazard analyses with device applications and include plans for how to issue software updates. The investigative report from the inspector generals of“ce examines FDAs efforts before device approval. A second report, still being written, will examine FDAs efforts on cybersecurity after devices have been allowed onto the U.S. market. Though the auditors didnt identify any medical device that wasnt allowed onto the market for cybersecurity reasons, FDA of“cials said they already ask tough questions about computer security. One FDA employee quoted in the report said that she checks data-encryption and authentication features in diabetes devices that communicate via Bluetooth or WiFi, because those controls could cut down on the risk that an unauthorized person could take control of the device and deliver too much insulin. In another case, an FDA reviewer found that a company that makes glucose monitors relies on end-users antivirus software and “rewalls, but that wasnt re”ected in the user manual or the hazard analysis. The unidenti“ed company had to update its hazard analysis to include the missing information before the FDA would accept it, the report says. The FDA also focuses on known cybersecurity risks in the preapproval stage. One FDA reviewer said the agency took into accountŽ a widely known password vulnerability when a similar device from the same company was submitted for review. In another case, when independent computer hackers showed that they could remotely take control of a companys implanted heart devices to deplete batteries or cause inappropriate shocks, the revelation spurred the FDA to meet with several other device companies that were preparing submissions of similar pacemakers and implantable de“brillators. During these presubmission meetings, FDA discussed with each manufacturer the newly discovered vulnerability and inquired what cybersecurity controls their device had,Ž the inspector generals report says. The meetings gave the FDA the chance to ask pointed questions about the cybersecurity risks and controls of their devices, and to discuss information that manufacturers might not have known FDA was interested in.Ž The inspectors speci“cally recommended that FDA reviewers add cybersecurity to their refuse to acceptŽ checklist, which is a list of items that companies must submit at the beginning of the process just to be considered for potential clearance or approval. FDA of“cials said they agree with the recommendation, but its more of an ef“ciency move since it wont change what information companies have to submit „ just the potential timing of it. Including cybersecurity as an item on the checklist could help ensure that the initial submission contains all the necessary elements for digital security up front, instead of making the FDA ask for it later. The federal inspectors also recommended that FDA include cybersecurity discussions in their meetings with companies planning to submit devices for approval, and to add it to the digital templates used for reviewing lower-risk devices. The FDA said it has taken those two steps, and is also already working to update its rules for how network-capable devices should be designed at their earliest stages with cybersecurity in mind. New rules under consideration at FDA could require device-makers to create and distribute a software bill of materialsŽ that would identify all the software that comes standard on a device. The agency is also considering forming a public-private CyberMed Safety Analysis Board that would assess high-impact cyber problems to be a go teamŽ to investigate potential and actual device compromises at the FDAs request.FDA to bolster cybersecurity of medical devices TNS PHOTOA Medtronic MiniMed insulin pump monitors Audrey McKinneys blood sugar level every “ve minutes and automatically dispenses insulin to keep her within acceptable levels at her home on Jan. 3, in Festus, Missouri.

The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 E/N/C Page 3By MATTHEW PERRONEAP HEALTH WRITERU.S. health of“cials are sounding the alarm about rising teenage use of e-cigarettes, calling the problem an epidemicŽ and ordering manufacturers to reverse the trend or risk having their ”avored vaping products pulled from the market. The warning from the Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday cited recent data that points to a sharp increase in underage use of the handheld nicotine products, including Juul and others. It marks a shift in the agencys tone on e-cigarettes. Since last year, FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb and other federal of“cials have discussed e-cigarettes as a potential tool to ween adult smokers off cigarettes, although that bene“t hasnt been proven. But Gottlieb said in an address at FDA headquarters that he failed to predict the current epidemic of addictionŽ among youth, mainly driven by ”avored products. The disturbing and accelerating trajectory of use were seeing in youth and the resulting path to addiction must end,Ž Gottlieb told agency staffers and reporters. Its simply not tolerable.Ž E-cigarettes are vapor-emitting devices that have grown into a multi-billion dollar industry in the U.S. despite little research on their long-term effects, including whether they are helpful in helping smokers quit. Theyre generally considered a less dangerous alternative to regular cigarettes. But health of“cials have warned nicotine in e-cigarettes is harmful to developing brains. They typically contain nicotine, and sometimes ”avorings like fruit, mint or chocolate. Health advocates have worried about the popularity of vaping products among kids and the potential impact on smoking rates in the future. A government-commissioned report in January found substantial evidenceŽ that young people who use e-cigarettes are more likely to try cigarettes. Gottlieb cited unreleased federal data and research that he says will be made public in coming months. We didnt foresee the extent of whats now become one of our biggest challenges,Ž he said, in prepared remarks. Hindsight, and the data thats now available to us, fully reveal these trends.Ž In June, a government survey found teen vaping seemed to be holding steady last year. Some experts were cautious about the results, however. They noted the survey did not ask speci“cally about Juul, a sleek, heavily-marketed e-cigarette brand that exploded onto the market and accounts for 70 percent of U.S. sales, according to analyst estimates. I think it became clear to FDA that if they didnt get their arms around this issue the use of these products by kids across the nation would undo decades of progress,Ž said Matthew Myers of the Campaign for TobaccoFree Kids. His group and several other medical and anti-smoking groups are suing the FDA over a decision to delay federal review of most e-cigarettes. Under regulations developed by the Obama administration, manufacturers were supposed to submit most products for review by August 2018. But last year Gottlieb said he would delay the deadline until 2022. He said both the agency and industry needed more time to prepare. The decision was criticized by anti-smoking advocates who say e-cigarette makers are targeting kids with candy and fruit ”avors and aggressive marketing. Under Wednesdays announcement, the “ve largest e-cigarette manufacturers will have 60 days to produce plans to reverse underage use of their products. The companies sell Vuse, Blu, Juul, MarkTen XL, and Logic e-cigarette brands, which account for 97 percent of U.S. e-cigarette sales, according to FDA. San Francisco-based Juul said it is working to prevent underage use of its products but added that ”avors can help adult smokers quit cigarettes. By working together, we believe we can help adult smokers while preventing access to minors,Ž the company said in a statement. The FDA also announced 1,300 warning letters and “nes to online and traditional stores that have illegally sold Juul and other e-cigarettes to minors. Gottlieb criticized e-cigarette companies handling of underage use of their products, saying they approached it as a public relations challenge rather than seriously considering their legal obligations.Ž Im here to tell them today that this prior approach is over,Ž he said.Calling teen vaping epidemic, officials weigh flavor ban AP PHOTOThis 2013 “le photo shows vials of ”avored liquid at a store selling electronic cigarettes and related items in Los Angeles.

Conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, respiratory disease and high blood pressure that are familiar to many seniors do not have to prevent you from living a healthy and ful“lling life. An option for many wanting to maintain or reclaim their good health is to join a gym. Joining a gym is, in most cases, a step toward improving ones “tness and/or health. With that said, because it is possible for one to join a gym and experience little in the way of progress, it is important that consideration be given to those techniques and strategies that are capable of helping to ensure gym success.Ž The truth is, attending a gym „ even when much effort and time are contributed „ is no guarantee to success. Getting the most from a gym experience requires, “rst and foremost, that the right gym be selected. In addition, proper planning, adequate preparation and an attitude that fosters success are important. Below are a number of tips that have proved helpful to many in the past. Use them to help you select a gym that suits your needs and one that will offer you the greatest bene“ts at the lowest cost. € At the start, you should determine your purpose for wanting to join a gym. Is it to improve your existing state of health, lose weight, forge a more attractive body, address an illness or injury or is it something else? This is important. € With your purpose in mind, visit a number of gyms to determine the one that is best for you. The one you select should be favorable to your schedule and should provide the equipment and other services required to help you reach your goal. € It is important that you determine the services (basic and special) a particular gym offers before joining it. Almost all mannedŽ gyms will offer certain basic services. These will, normally, include a super“cial assessment of your existing “tness needs, the providing of a basic training program and an introduction to the various pieces of equipment. That being the case, if you had speci“c problems or concerns such as a pot belly or poor balance, that required services that are special or more advanced, it is quite unlikely that such gyms would be capable of adequately addressing those conditions. To do so, they would need -in their employadvanced personal trainers or certi“ed “tness or health personnel. € Read all sign onŽ ads carefully. Pay particular attention to whatever is offered. Also, study carefully the words that are used. Bait And SwitchŽ is a common strategy used in many ads. Its goal is to have you do something (join a particular club) by providing you with an offer that, in most cases, is too good to be true. What normally happens, is that you fall for the offer and end up paying a lot of money for important services and/or products that were never disclosed or were hidden in the “ne print.Ž € Be wary of any contract you are asked to sign. Read it carefully to ensure that you will be paying only what you are to pay and that you will not be tricked into a long-term commitment that is unfavorable to you. € Ensure that the amount you have to pay to attend a particular gym is affordable to you. The inability to pay the recurring dues required to maintain an active status at a particular gym is a common reason why many people abandon (or decrease) their “tness or health improvement efforts. The good news is, a number of programs exist to help you attend a vast number of gyms absolutely free. Silver Sneakers is one such program. It is free to you if your health plan offers it. Contact your health insurance provider to determine if it carries Silver Sneakers. You may also wish to contact the Cultural Centers Fitness Center at 941-625-4175 ext. 263 to determine your eligibility for Silver Sneakers or for additional information on the program.

Page 6 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018By DAN MEARNSFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENTOwner Kris Chana pulled out all the stops for the inaugural Senior (Citizen) Prom at Chelsea Place Adult Day Care in Port Charlotte. Executive Director Samantha Reyes of Chelsea Place Assisted Living came up with the senior prom idea, including the decorations throughout the care center common room. Purple and white balloons ”oated above table centerpieces, while white ribbons and a disco ball hung from the ceiling. Among the 60 or so guests were day care center clients and residents of Chelsea Place Assisted Living in Charlotte Harbor. Chana arranged for a stretch limo from Star Limousine of Charlotte County to bring assisting living residents to the day care center, where they stepped out of the car onto a red carpet before being gr eeted by another red carpet inside the office. The ladies were pampered by hair, nail and makeup stylists. Held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the prom featured a catered lunch from Sonnys BBQ, special photos, live music, dancing and more. Activities director Linda Shuman led attendees in some trivia and a sing along of popular songs. The event included a Dine & DashŽ portion (11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.), with guests welcome to stop by, see what was happening and purchase a Sonnys to-go lunch box for $10. Chana invited marketers, healthcare professionals, discharge planners, social workers and other business professionals. Lunch came with a swagŽ bag of chatzkies Proceeds were donated to the Alzheimers Association. Everybody had an absolute blast,Ž Chana said. and we could not have done it without the support of our wonderful sponsors.

The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 By MICHAEL LIEDTKEAP TECHNOLOGY WRITERApple is trying to turn its smartwatch from a niche gadget into a lifeline to better health by slowly evolving it into a medical device. In its fourth incarnation, called Series 4 and due out later this month, the Apple Watch will add features that allow it to take high-quality heart readings and detect falls. Its part of Apples longin-the-making strategy to give people a distinct reason to buy a wrist gadget that largely does things smartphones already do. Since the Apple Watch launched in April 2015, most people havent “gured out why they need to buy one. Apple doesnt release sales “gures, but estimates from two analysts suggest the company shipped roughly 18 million watches in 2017. Apple sold almost 12 times as many iPhones „ 216 million „ last year. Worldwide, about 48 million smartwatches are expected to be sold this year, compared with nearly 1.9 billion phones, according to the research “rm Gartner. Apple CEO Tim Cook has long emphasized the watchs health and “tness-tracking capabilities. The original version featured a heart-rate sensor that fed data into “tness and workout apps so they could suggest new goals and offer digital rewardsŽ for “tness accomplishments. Two years later, Apple called its watch the ultimate device for a healthy life,Ž emphasizing water resistance for swimmers and built-in GPS for tracking runs or cycling workouts. In February, the company announced that the watch would track skiing and snowboarding runs, including data on speed and vertical descent. The latest version, unveiled Wednesday, is pushing the health envelope even further „ in particular by taking electrocardiograms, or EKGs, a feature given clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Apple said. The watch will also monitor for irregular heartbeats and can detect when the wearer has fallen, the company said. EKGs are important tests of heart health and typically require a visit to the doctor. The feature gained an onstage endorsement from Ivor Benjamin, a cardiologist who is president of the American Heart Association. He said such real-time data would change the way doctors work. Gartner analyst Tuong Nguyen said the feature could turn smartwatches from something people buy for prestige into something they buy for more practical reasons.Ž It could also lead some health insurance plans to subsidize the cost of an Apple Watch, Nguyen said. That would help defray the $400 starting price for a device that still requires a companion iPhone, which can now cost more than $1,000. Apples watch will use new sensors on the back and on the watch dial. A new app will say whether each reading is normal or shows signs of atrial “brillation, an irregular heart rate that increases the risk of heart complications, such as stroke and heart failure. Apple says the heart data can be shared with doctors through a PDF “le, though its not yet clear how ready doctors are to receive a possible ”ood of new EKG data from patients „ nor how useful they will “nd the electronic “les. Eric Topol, a cardiologist and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute, warned that the EKG feature could spur more tests than necessary, result in unnecessary prescriptions for blood thinners and overwhelm doctors with calls from patients who probably dont need treatment. He said that while the feature will probably save some lives and prevent strokes with early detection of heart trouble, the ratio between the bene“ts and the costs remains a big unknown.Ž Apple said the EKG feature will be available to U.S. customers later this year, an indication that it may not be ready for launch. Fall detection could also be signi“cant, especially for elderly users. The new Apple Watch claims to be able to tell the difference between a trip and a fall „ and when the latter occurs, it will suggest calling 911 (or the equivalent outside the U.S.). If it receives no response within a minute, the watch will automatically place an emergency call and message friends and family designated as emergency contacts. Only certain Apple Watch models support cellular calls, but those that dont can still make emergency calls when near a paired iPhone or Wi-Fi service. Apple says it monitored some 2,500 people „ measuring how they fell off ladders, missed a step while walking or got their legs caught in their pants while getting dressed. It used that data to separate real falls from other heavy wrist movements, such as clapping and hammering. The feature is available immediately worldwide and will turn on automatically for users 65 and over. Younger people can activate it in the settings. I can see kids buying one for their parents and grandparents,Ž analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights said. But the Apple Watch still lacks one feature found in rival wrist gadgets: the ability to analyze sleep quality. Battery life in the new watch remains at 18 hours, meaning it needs a nightly recharge.The Apple Watch is inching toward becoming a medical device AP PHOTOApple CEO Tim Cook discusses the new Apple Watch 4 at the Steve Jobs Theater during an event to announce new products Wednesday, in Cupertino, California.Food Addicts AnonymousA 12-step program for those who wish to recover from food addiction.

The group meets the last Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:30 p.m. with lunch provided. Research shows that social support has benefits for cancer patients, those recovering from treatment and their family and loved ones by reducing anxiety and stress, emotional distress and depression, fatigue and the experience of pain while improving mood, self-image, ability to cope with stress and feelings of control. In addition, having a supportive social network can help with recovery and adjusting to life after treatment. The support group allows those experiencing a cancer diagnosis to cope with the emotional aspects by providing a safe place to share their feelings and challenges while allowing people to learn from others facing similar situations. Cancer patients and their family members are encouraged to attend. Active participation is not required, listeners are welcome. Physicians and other health professionals will periodically speak to the group on cancer related topics. For more information or to RSVP, please call Fawcetts oncology patient navigators at 941-624-8318. SUPPORT GROUPS Its important to know who to trust with your health because you want the very best.

Aqua Shakey guests follow the lead of Laurentz Cascante during the her “rst class at Lakeside Plantation. Raising awareness is so important to me and for future generations. So I shared my picture on Facebook. Delise then shared my post. We started talking and thought, if one person from each state within our dystonia community “led for a proclamation, how much awareness this would bring,Ž said Speckman. Emily Dickson jumped on the request and contacted Florida governor Rick Scotts of“ce and received the proclamation earlier last week. Because of her diagnoses, she too wants to create awareness for this disorder. We are moving, as a whole, to make September Dystonia Awareness month. Many of us affected by dystonia are home-bound by our disability. And socially it can be very challenging to go out into society. Awareness could help us to feel more socially accepted,Ž said Dickson. So far the group has obtained proclamations from Florida, Ohio, Michigan, New York, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Minnesota, Nevada, West Virginia and Virginia, plus the city of Philadelphia and Suffolk County and New York. There is just one surgical option available for those who qualify, deep brain stimulation, and there is no guarantee of its success. Surgeons place electrodes into the brain and implant a pacemaker-type device below the collarbone. The device delivers electrical pulses to decrease symptoms. This surgery is also used for Parkinsons disease patients. In my early 30s I started looking for another way, I was extremely tired and my life consisted of doing things around the house, napping and sitting on my couch. I didnt wanted to be this person anymore. In 2012 I found deep brain stimulation and “nally felt like there was a ounce of hope. After extreme testing I began my journey for DBS in 2013, explained Speckman. I proceeded to have DBS on the right side of my brain and in 2014, the left. It was a rough recovery but my tremors were reduced to barely nothing and I had enough balance to start walking again „ although it did not address the twisting, pulling and dystonic posture, it was a success.Ž Speckman felt much better, both physically and mentally. I felt like I had a purpose again. After a few years, I started noticing progression up into my neck, mouth, jaw and eyes; I turned to Facebook support groups. I felt comfortable there with people just like me. I now believe I have been shown a new path to walk of raising awareness and helping others do the same,Ž said Speckman. Personal stories are powerful for increasing dystonia awareness. Its important for community and government leaders to be informed about a disorder that affects their neighbors and constituents. These efforts put a face to dystonia „ revealing the human experience behind the name of a little-known disorder. Volunteers can make a big difference locally by reaching out to municipal and state of“ces, and sharing their stories. Meanwhile, the Dystonia Advocacy Network is a coalition of dystonia patient advocacy organizations that operates on the national level to educate Congress and policy makers about dystonia, the impact on those affected, and the need for federally supported research funding. Every effort and every volunteer makes a difference. September is Dystonia Awareness Month, its been recognized by both chambers of Congress,Ž said Feeley. $5Cure4Dystonia is a tremendously successful campaign created by dystonia awareness all-stars Mike Delise and Jason Dunn of Warren, Michigan. Proceeds from $5Cure4Dystonia support the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation and are earmarked for research,Ž said Feeley.  I love this because most people can spare $5 and if our dystonia community all gave just $5, think of all the money we are raising toward “nding a cure,Ž said Speckman. I also wanted to help bring awareness and contacted the Charlotte County Commissioners of“ce and am happy to say that they proclaimed September as Dystonia Awareness Month at their Sept. 11 meeting.

Folks at the Quality Health Care Center in North Port, where she is director of nursing, had been holding small fundraisers for the Alzheimers Association. She thought it would be fun to sponsor a Fall Festival to bene“t the Walk to End Alzheimers. The festival is planned for noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 22, at the skilled nursing facility at 6940 Outreach Way in North Port. About 90 of Quality Healths 120 beds are occupied, and about three-quarters of those people suffer from some form on dementia. Alzheimers is the most common form of dementia. We started thinking about it,Ž Apostolico said of how the Fall Festival came about. Its the “rst sponsored by the facility. One thing led to another, and we decided to do something to generate more funds for the walk. So many of our patients have dementia and Alzheimers.Ž The festival will include carnival games, a bake sale, craft vendors, hot dogs, popcorn, face painting, a photo booth, a bake sale, and some really neat basketsŽ to be raf”ed off. Were very excited about it,Ž Apostolico said. The Charlotte County Walk to End Alzheimers is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Oct. 6, at Laishley Park in Punta Gorda. In Sarasota County, its scheduled for 9 a.m. Nov. 17, at Benderson Park in Sarasota.Fall Festival to benefit Alzheimers IF YOU GOWhat: Fall Festival When: Noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 22 Where: Quality Home Care, 6940 Outreach Way in North Port When: Benefits Walk to End Alzheimers Information: Call 941-4268411 or email dapostolico@ outbreak caused us to add a booster at age four to six,Ž said Dr. Helgemo. Since wed added that second measles shot, the virus was virtually eradicated until people stopped vaccinating.Ž The decision by many parents not to have their children vaccinated can be traced to British doctor Andrew Wake“eld, who reported a link between the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine and autism in a 1998 case study based on six patients. It was only considered a possibility. The theory gained momentum in this country when taken up by Jenny McCarthy and other U.S. celebrities. It has been found he falsi“ed the study. This fraudulent study has been scienti“cally proved to be not true in any way, shape or form,Ž said Dr. Helgemo. The case study data was falsi“ed by the one main investigator, and all of the other scientists involved pulled out of the study.Ž The journal in which the study was published disavowed it and Dr. Wake“eld was stripped of his license to practice medicine. But while McCarthy has somewhat stepped back from her assertions that MMR causes autism (Im pro-vaccine,Ž she has said), Dr. Wake“eld continues to champion his cause. This is his career now, creating hysteria about measles vaccine and other immunizations causing autism,Ž Dr. Helgemo said. He has bene“ted “nancially from this.Ž And he still has his followers. Despite 20 years of studies proving that no such link exists, vaccination rates have plummeted in the United States and elsewhere „ and have not fully recovered. Its hard to convince people who are really anti-vaccine to acknowledge the science,Ž Dr. Helgemo said. They simply dont believe, same as people who deny the science of global warming or evolution. And they have caused such unrest among parents who want to do the right thing, but dont do the measles shot or other vaccines. Delaying immunizations is one of the worse things they can do, because those kids are at risk and they in turn put all children at risk.Ž Dr. Helgemo and his partner and fellow pediatrician Dr. Wen Liou operate Helgemo & Liou Pediatrics, 2040 C Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte.

The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 E/N/C Page 31 By CARRIE MASONDRAFFENNEWSDAY (TNS)DEAR CARRIE: I have a question about a noncompete agreement for one industry and how it might apply to a noncompeting industry. I signed a 48-month noncompete agreement when I was hired. It clearly states that it applies to any company that directly competes with my existing employer. I am now looking for another job in an unrelated industry. Do I need to tell my prospective employer about my noncompete agreement? „ How Binding? DEAR HOW: It would make sense to mention it, even though you arent obligated to do so, said an attorney who has represented employees for more than 35 years and regularly deals with noncompete issues. There are several reasons to call it to a prospective employers attention, said Alan Sklover of Sklover & Co. in Manhattan. The “rst is: While it sure seems a simple matter that two companies in different industries should not be competitors, there are, in fact, some circumstances in which lawyers could argue that they may be competitive,Ž Sklover said. He offered these two examples: While a bowling alley and a movie theater are in different industries, they might be viewed to both offer entertainment services and compete for the same customers on Saturday night. And certain medical professionals may offer stress-reduction techniques; so, too „ it might be argued „ do yoga studios. Different industries, but the same or similar services, and potentially the same or similar customers.Ž The second reason he offered is that frankly, it is not for your reader to make the judgment of what is competitive and what is not. Rather it is for the prospective employer to do so, and more accurately, the prospective employers lawyer,Ž Sklover said. Third and finally, Sklover explained that most people do not understand that noncompete agreements are most often not enforced in court, but rather by a simple cease-anddesistŽ letter sent by the former employers lawyer to the future employer, insisting that it terminate the new employee. Like everyone else, employers do not like getting sued, or even threatened with a lawsuit,Ž Sklover said. They are much more likely to dismiss an employee who brought this upon them, if the employee had earlier said I did not sign a noncompete, when, in fact, the employee had done so.Ž If the readers new employer receives such a cease-anddesist letter and it wasnt br ought to the companys attention before, the new employer may feel it was tricked,Ž he said. If, on the other hand, the noncompete agreement was disclosed during the interview, the employer would not feel deceived. I have seen employees in these circumstances fired by the new employer, for not disclosing a noncompete,Ž he said. If a prospective employee has nothing to hide and nothing to lose, then the prospective employee has nothing to fear. Complete openness, full disclosure and unquestionable integrity are all conducive to building strong employment relations, especially in this context, and in the early stages of the relation.Ž DEAR READERS: Several people responded to last weeks column about older job seekers and their dif“culty in “nding a job. Here are two examples: DEAR CARRIE: I am coming up on 60 and was not getting offers. So I took a bunch of civil-service tests. I did quite well, which helped my self-esteem. Not long afterward I began to get offers. I now have a job at a local medical center. DEAR CARRIE: Great article, but it only scratches the surface. I am 54 and have been out of work for two years. I started my own business because I could not “nd a job. I make only a fraction of what I used to make „ less than 10 percent. I know people in similar situations. Go to noncompeteLI for more on noncompete agreements.Help Wanted: Job hunter wonders whether she should By JANET KIDD STEWARTTRIBUNE NEWS SERVICESome of us are earning more and saving more for retirement than we were “ve years ago, but is it too little, too late? More than a quarter (28 percent) of working Americans surveyed by said they are saving more for retirement in 2018 than they did last year, while 13 percent reported saving less. The percentage of respondents who said they are boosting their savings has climbed each year for the last four years, according to the website. After the “nancial crisis, there was a notable shift, with people recognizing the importance of savings. But when wage growth was tough to come by, we didnt see the savings needle move because people really couldnt do anything about it,Ž said Greg McBride, Bankrates chief “nancial analyst. Now the needle is starting to move and people are putting away more money.Ž Other studies suggest they need to. A new survey of employers by Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies “nds just 16 percent are very con“dent their employees will be “nancially secure in retirement, and just 18 percent of workers are very con“dent they will fully retire and live comfortably. Thats a very discouraging result,Ž said Catherine Collinson, president and CEO of Transamerica Institute. She says the numbers could improve substantially if more employers offered phased retirement, help with retirement income planning and better overall retirement plan design. But how much employers really care about improving their plans is debatable.

Page 2 E/N/C The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 JOBSBy JOYCE M. ROSENBERGAP BUSINESS WRITERNEW YORK „ Offers of training and stock in their new employer werent enough to keep four out of his “ve staffers when Dennis Chow sold his information technology “rm in 2016. Chow and the buyers learned one of the hard lessons of a business sale „ despite their best efforts, some employees will leave. People departed from both companies when SCIS Security acquired Chows Houston-based Xtec Systems, most of them workers who didnt like their new assignments. We lost maybe 25 percent of the overall workforce,Ž Chow says. As the number of small business sales keeps rising, staff retention is a priority „ especially since low unemployment makes it easy for many workers to “nd new jobs. Transactions tallied by online marketplace show more than 2,700 small businesses changed hands during the second quarter, the most since the count began in 2007. The trend is being driven in large part by retiring baby boomer owners. One big problem can be a culture clash „ staffers whose company is sold may be uncomfortable with their new bosses and how the business is now being run. A new owner may be more rigid about schedules or more of a micromanager. Staffers who worked with just a handful of people before might “nd themselves with dozens of coworkers, and miss the old camaraderie. Bosses should focus on the quality of employees work life, says Mike Astringer, owner of Human Capital Consultants, a human resources provider. Money, whether its in the form or a raise or a bonus, may not work in the long run. The new acquirer and the seller need to really collaborate in the transition to make sure the culture not going to change, that the reason people work there is going to continue,Ž he says. Critical to keeping staffers is not springing the ownership change on them at the last minute. That will only anger them and add to their anxiety and temptation to ”ee, Astringer says. A new boss should acknowledge and validate staffers feelings, and not try pep talks to ease anxiety, says John Proctor, CEO of Ottawa, Ontario-based Martello Technologies. The information and communications technology company has made two acquisitions in recent years, giving Proctor experience with persuading reluctant staffers to stay. People arent praying at the altar of Martello. It doesnt work like that,Ž he says. Proctors approach is to meet with staffers individually or in small groups, spell out his ideas for the companys direction and ask employees about the roles they see themselves playing. He recommends listening rather than dictating. Youre giving them a sense of ownership instead of, Youre going to be doing this, and youre going to be doing that,Ž he says. Still, Proctor warns owners to expect some friction. You also need to be realistic that there will be issues and disputes and you must deal with those with an open and frank dialogue with all involved,Ž he says. It can be more dif“cult to retain staffers in some industries than others. David Crais, chief executive of CMG Carelytics a health technology development company that has done several acquisitions, has found software engineers reluctant to be part of a company thats growing by buying others. Many times, theyre driven by wanting to be part of a building process,Ž says Crais, The more an owner can align a staffers needs with the companys culture, the greater the chances of retaining employees, Crais says. He considers an acquisition a success if 70 percent to 75 percent of the staff is still there 18 months later. John Ahlberg, whose technology support and management company has made several acquisitions in recent years, has been able to retain about a third of the staffers who joined his “rm, Chicago-based Waident Technology Solutions. Those who left tended to be uncomfortable with the culture at their new company; for example, they were used to working on their own and had a hard time adapting to team work. With each person, we sit down and talk to them, and ask, What are you doing now, and what skills do you have?Ž Ahlberg says. But most of the conversation revolves around, What are your hopes and dreams. What do you want to be doing?Ž Those conversations must be ongoing, Ahlberg says: We sit with everyone regularly to make sure they are heard, we discuss the company expectations and de“ne what is expected of them. We try to leave nothing vague.Ž Sometimes there isnt much an owner can do. Steve Sargent hoped for an easy transition when he bought an automotive repair shop in Cary, North Carolina, in March and turned it into a Mr. Transmission/ Milex franchise. He told the three staffers they could keep their jobs, but changes he made, including new technology to handle transactions and accounting, were troubling for the shop manager. Sargent provided training and tried to talk to the man, but couldnt get him to open up about his frustration. He always said he wasnt going to leave,Ž Sargent says. But nearly three months after Sargent arrived, he called me and said, I cant do this anymore,Ž Sargent recalls. Sargent advises other owners to keep communicating, but be ready for people to quit. Not everyone will make it through the transition, so be proactive about looking for replacements before a person leaves,Ž he says.Surging business sales make staff retention a must In this Friday, Aug. 17, 2018, photo, John Ahlberg works at his desk in Glen Ellyn, Ill.

The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 E/N/C Page 9 JOBSemployees achieve a “nancially secure retirement, with 41 percent feeling somewhat responsible. Even narrowing the “eld to just the companies who already offer a retirement plan doesnt boost the numbers much. Just 19 percent feel very responsible, though another 50 percent feel somewhat responsible. A few takeaways from both surveys: „ Mind your own rate. While its instructive to learn what others are doing „ and important from a policy standpoint to advocate for better plans „ the retirement buck really does stop with you. Most experts now recommend saving 15 percent of pay if you earn at or above median U.S. income, now around $59,000. Lower income workers might get by saving less because a higher portion of their incomes presumably will be covered by Social Security. Very high income workers will need to save even more. „ Be aware of culture. A lot of employers give lip service to the value of older workers experience, but the reality is employers still discriminate, so it pays to invest in ways to stay vibrant. In the Transamerica survey, when asked how old is too old to work, workers said 75. Employers said 70. „ Be choosy in the job market. If you manage to score multiple job offers as the jobless rate continues to shrink, compare retirement and health benefits closely. A slightly higher salary wont make up for a bad plan. „ Dont wait for a better system. The Center for Retirement Research offered up several policy suggestions earlier this year for improving the U.S. retirement system, but you dont have to wait around for the government to act. On your own, you can tackle most of CRRs wish list: When you leave a job, figure out the 401k rollover rules and determine if its best to stay in the plan or go. Understand fees and adviser conflicts of interest. Dont take money out of a 401k early. Find the best strategy for claiming Social Security and coordinate that with your retirement plan withdrawal strategy. On that last point, it would certainly be easier if policymakers encouraged all those items, but if your retirement clock is running down, dont sit around and wait.CLOCKFROM PAGE 1 By CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON (AP) „ U.S. employers advertised the most jobs on record in July, and the number of workers quitting their jobs also hit a new alltime high. Americans are increasingly taking advantage of a tight labor market to “nd new, often higher-paying jobs. That could help push up wages broadly across the economy. The Labor Department said Tuesday that the number of job openings rose 1.7 percent to 6.9 million, the most on record dating back to late 2000. The number of people quitting jumped 3 percent to 3.58 million, also a record. Quits are typically a good sign that jobs are plentiful, because people usually quit when they have another job or are con“dent they can “nd one. With the unemployment rate at 3.9 percent, near an 18-year low, businesses are increasingly desperate to “nd workers. Even as the number of available jobs rose, overall hiring in July was essentially ”at, with about 5.7 million people “nding jobs, the report showed. The data are from the governments Job Openings and Labor Turnover survey, or JOLTS, which tracks total job openings, quits and hiring. The JOLTS report comes after the government said on Friday that employers added a healthy 201,000 jobs in August. That “gure represents the net total of jobs added, while the JOLTS data reports overall hires without subtracting quits, layoffs and resignations. The jump in job openings in July suggests solid hiring will continue in the coming months. Private sector surveys also point to solid gains. ManpowerGroups employment outlook survey, released Tuesday, found that employers in all 13 large industries that it tracks plan to add workers in the “nal three months of the year. The staf“ng companys survey also found that hiring should pick up in all four regions. The companys hiring index in the South reached a 10-year high, ManpowerGroup said. With the economy growing at a healthy clip and consumers spending freely, employers are optimistic about future demand and want to hire more. That appears to be finally pushing some employers to pay more, pushing up wages. According to Fridays jobs report, average hourly pay rose 2.9 percent in August compared with a year earlier. That was the best annual gain since June 2009, when the Great Recession ended. A more dynamic job market, with more people quitting and finding new work, can help fuel better wage gains. Workers who switch jobs are getting raises roughly one-third larger than those who remain at their jobs, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Mobility of workers between jobs boosts competition for talent and puts pressure on employers to offer better pay and bene“ts,Ž said Cathy Barrera, chief economist for online job site ZipRecruiter. Openings rose in manufacturing, “nance and insurance, and hotels and restaurants. They fell in retail and in education and health.As job openings reach unprecedented levels, so does quittingUS job openings reaches record high and so do the number of Americans who are quitting, seeking a greener pasture In this June 28, 2018, “le photo, a help wanted sign hangs outside the U.S. Steel Granite City Works facility in Granite City, Ill.

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Labor Department reports on job openings and labor turnover for July. By CHRISTOPHER RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITERWASHINGTON „ U.S. businesses added 163,000 jobs in August, a private survey found, a decent gain that suggests that employers are confident enough to keep hiring. Payroll processor ADP said Thursday that the job gains were the fewest since October. But last months pace of hiring is still enough to lower the unemployment rate over time. Solid economic growth is underpinning an optimistic outlook among businesses. Growth reached 4.2 percent at an annual rate in the April-June quarter, the fastest pace in four years, spurred by tax cuts and robust consumer spending. ADPs hiring figures come a day before the government will release its official jobs data for August. Economists have forecast that Fridays report will show that employers added a solid 189,000 jobs last month, according to data provider FactSet. The job gains ADP reported for August were much lower than the 217,000 that it said were added in July. Hiring by small businesses „ defined as those with fewer than 50 employees „ remained sluggish last month and depressed overall job growth. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics, said that with the unemployment rate at a low 3.9 percent, smaller companies are having a harder time finding workers. Larger firms are typically able to offer high pay or more benefits and can pull in more employees as a result. Hiring was particularly strong last month for medium-sized companies, with 50 to 499 employees. Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, lowered his forecast for August hiring to 170,000 after the ADP report was issued. This is a bit disappointing but hardly a disaster,Ž Shepherdson said. ADP compiles hiring data from millions of companies that are clients of its payroll services. Its figures frequently diverge from the governments data but tend to approximate them over time.Survey: US companies added a solid 163,000 jobs in August AP PHOTOIn this is a July 25, 2018, photo cars drive by a help wanted sign at a Cook Out fast food restaurant in Jackson, Miss.

BREEDASSOCIATED PRESSNEW BERN, N.C. „ The Marines, the Coast Guard, civilian crews and volunteers used helicopters, boats and heavy-duty vehicles Saturday to rescue hundreds of people trapped by Florences shoreline onslaught, even as North Carolina braced for what could be the next stage of the disaster: widespread, catastrophic ” ooding inland. The death toll from the hurricaneturned-tropical storm climbed to 11. A day after blowing ashore with 90 mph winds, Florence practically parked itself over land all day long and poured on the rain. With rivers rising toward record levels, thousands of people were ordered to evacuate for fear the next few days could bring the most destructive round of ” ooding in North Carolina history. More than 2 feet of rain had fallen in places, and the drenching went on and on, with forecasters saying there could be an additional 1 feet by the end of the weekend. I cannot overstate it: Floodwaters are rising, and if you arent watching for them, you are risking your life,Ž Gov. Roy Cooper said. As of 5 p.m., Florence was centered about 60 miles west of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, inching west at 2 mph „ not even as fast as a person walking. Its winds were down to 45 mph. With half of the storm still out over the Atlantic, Florence continued to collect warm ocean water and dump it on land. In its initial onslaught along the coast, Florence buckled buildings, deluged entire communities and knocked out power to more than 900,000 homes and businesses. But the storm was shaping up as a two-part disaster, with the second, delayed stage triggered by rainwater working its way into rivers Death toll rises to 11 as Florence pours rainEpic rainfall and record floods bring new danger as Florence shifts inland AP PHOTOIn the photos shown side by side, houses are surrounded by water from Florence, now a tropical storm, in New Bern, N.C., Saturday.

By BASSEM MROUEASSOCIATED PRESSBEIRUT „ U.S.-backed Syrian forces entered an eastern village held by the Islamic State group where intense clashes are ongoing on Saturday, a day after the extremists reportedly killed 20 “ ghters, the forces and a war monitor said. The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces said its “ ghters stormed Bagouz and are close to the center of the village. The forces added that they plan to open another front in the Sousseh area along the Euphrates river to increase pressure on the extremists. SDF launched with the help of the U.S.-led coalition a wide offensive this week to capture the last pocket held by IS in Syria. The Kurdish-led forces have been among the most effective in the “ ght against IS in Syria, forcing them out of much of the countrys east. Despite losing most of the territory it held between Iraq and Syria since its peak in 2014, the jihadist IS remains a disruptive force in both countries. Its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, urged his followers to persevereŽ in an audio tape attributed to him last month. The IS-linked Aamaq news agency said the groups gunmen targeted advancing SDF “ ghters in the Bagouz area with mortar rounds, roadside bombs and sniper “ re in” icting many casualties among them. The SDF commander of the operation in Bagouz, who identi“ ed himself as Shergo, said in a video statement that the “ ghting is intense from both sides and that his “ ghters now control almost half of the village. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said IS “ ghters are relying on a network of tunnels in the area and land mines to slow down SDFs offensive. It said that some 100 women and 30 men, including IS “ ghters, along with their children, surrendered to SDF “ ghters. The IS gunmen were taken to a tightly secured positions in the area, it added. The storming of Bagouz came a day after the Observatory said IS gunmen took advantage of a sandstorm and killed 20 SDF “ ghters in the countrys east, wounding others. Kurdish of“ cial Ebrahim Ebrahim also said 20 “ ghters were killed in an ambush by IS “ ghters. SDF said in a statement that only two of its “ ghters were killed and six others wounded in Fridays clashes. The Observatory said Saturday that since SDF launched its offensive on the IS-held pocket, including the town of Hajin, 53 extremists have been killed as well as 38 U.S.backed “ ghters.US-backed forces storm IS-held villageBy AARON FAVILA and JOEAL CALUPITANASSOCIATED PRESSTUGUEGARAO, Philippines „ Typhoon Mangkhut lashed the northern Philippines with destructive winds and heavy rain that set off landslides and destroyed homes on Saturday, leaving at least 12 people dead, as Hong Kong and other parts of southern China braced for the powerful storm. The most ferocious typhoon to hit the disaster-prone Philippines this year slammed ashore before dawn in Cagayan province on the northeastern tip of Luzon island, a breadbasket that is also a region of ” ood-prone rice plains and mountain provinces with a history of deadly landslides. More than 5 million people were at risk from the storm, which the Hawaii-based Joint Typhoon Warning Center downgraded from a super typhoon. Mangkhut, however, was still punching powerful winds and gusts equivalent to a Category 4 Atlantic hurricane when it hit the Philippines.

The Sarasota HeraldTribune reports that Melissa Howard signed a deferred prosecution agreement Friday. The agreement means Howard wont be formally charged with a crime. She had faced a misdemeanor count of misrepresenting her academic standing at a university. In the weeks before last months primary election, Howard posted a photo of herself with what looked like a Miami University diploma. The Ohio school later sent reporters a statement saying she attended the school but never graduated. Howard eventually admitted she didnt graduate from the school and dropped out of the race.Spanish-speaking worker refused English-speaking customersHIALEAH (AP) „ A Spanish-speaking Taco Bell worker in Florida has been “red after video showed her refusing to serve some Englishspeaking customers. Taco Bell Corp. told the Miami Herald Friday that a female employee seen in the viral video shot at a Hialeah store no longer works for the brand. Alexandria Montgomery posted a Facebook video Thursday of her experience Wednesday night. The video shows Montgomery repeatedly trying to order as the drive-thru worker insists in Spanish that she doesnt understand English and asks Montgomery to move her vehicle for other customers. Montgomery asks why she cant just list the items as written on the menu. The worker responds, No comprendo.Ž Census data shows 89 percent of Hialeah residents speak Spanish as their “rst or second language.

Authorities say the bundles of marijuana have washed ashore over several days in Volusia, Flagler and St. Johns counties, along the central-north part of Floridas Atlantic coast. Federal agents were expected to collect the drugs from the local law enforcement agencies as they investigate where they came from. Authorities say at least one man was arrested for trying to take the marijuana. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that when deputies questioned Robert Kelley, he told them he was just holding the marijuana until law enforcement arrived. He was charged with possession of marijuana and released on $2,500 bail.Inmate killed, body mutilated by cellmate in prisonLAKE CITY (AP) „ An inmate at a Florida prison strangled his cellmate, gouged the bodys eyes and then strung the dead inmates ear around his neck, according to a news report. The Miami Herald reported that Larry Mark was killed early Thursday at Columbia Correctional Institution, just hours before an unrelated gang “ght erupted in another building at the prison located in Lake City, Florida. Corrections of“cials say the prison houses some of the most violent inmates in the state. A Department of Corrections spokesman says Mark had been serving a life sentence for a 1981 murder. Neither the corrections agency nor the Florida Department of Law Enforcement provided the name of the attacker. Two sources told the Herald that the cellmate became angry with Mark for pestering him.Boy injured in school bus crashPLANT CITY (AP) „ Authorities said an 8-yearold boy was injured after his school bus was involved in a crash with a semi-trailer in Florida. The Tampa Bay Times reports that the crash occurred Friday morning in Plant City. The injured boy was the only passenger on the bus, as it headed to Knights Elementary School. The Florida Highway Patrol says the bus pulled in front of a semi-trailer hauling lime rock, causing its driver to swerve and lose control. The truck then overturned and was hit by the front of the school bus. Neither driver was injured. FHP said the boy was hospitalized with minor injuries. The bus driver was cited for violation of right-of-way. HEADLINES AROUND THE STATEBy YURAS KARMANAUASSOCIATED PRESSKIEV, Ukraine „ The United States special envoy for Ukraine said Saturday that Washington would consider providing more armaments to the country, whose army is “ghting with Russiabacked separatist rebels in the east. U.S. President Donald Trump this year reversed the Obama administrations refusal to provide lethal aid to Ukraine and has sent more than 200 Javelin anti-tank rockets. Envoy Kurt Volker told reporters in Kiev that Ukraine has improved its defense capabilities in recent years, but there are still some gaps in those capabilities. And wherever those gaps are, we are prepared to sit down and talk with Ukraine about what their needs are. They can buy things through our foreign military sales.Ž Volker said the United States is concerned about the expansion of Russian naval operations in the Sea of Azov, which borders Ukraine, Russia and the Russia-annexed Crimean Peninsula. We do not accept Russian claims about territory in the waters. We believe the presence of Russian military forces has become a provocative, aggressive step, so we are very concerned about that,Ž he said. The separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine have long threatened the Azov port of Mariupol; taking the city would be a key step toward their establishing a land corridor between Crimea and Russia. The U.S. envoy also criticized the elections that separatist leaders have called for November in two eastern regions, saying any voting would be a completely illegitimate exercise.Ž He criticized Russias resistance to full deployment of a United Nations peacekeeping mission in eastern Ukraine, where the “ghting between the separatists and Ukrainian forces has killed more than 10,000 people since 2014. Russia is insisting this be negotiated directly with the proxy entities,Ž Volker said, referring to the self-declared separatist governments in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Russia is, in fact, the decision-makerŽ in eastern Ukraine, he added.Envoy: US willing to consider further lethal aid to UkraineMEXICO CITY (AP) „ Mexicans heading into Independence Day celebrations have been jolted by a brazen shooting that left four dead and nine wounded in Garibaldi Plaza, a famous square where mariachi musicians serenade tourists. The Mexico City prosecutors of“ce said that at least one foreigner was among the wounded. Mexican news outlet La Silla Rota circulated surveillance video of the alleged assailants dressed in the traditional mariachi garb of short embroidered jackets and pants, ”eeing the scene on motorcycles. The shooting cast a bloody pall over Independence Day festivities. Many Mexicans wear mariachi costumes Saturday evening to commemorate the launch of the revolt against Spanish rule on September 16, 1810. Lisa Sanchez, director of Mexicans United Against Delinquency, described the shooting as a piercing portraitŽ of Mexico. She said the fact that the murder took place in a crowded public square demonstrates that impunity prevails in the country. On Saturday, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto is set to shout Viva MexicoŽ „ or Long Live MexicoŽ „ shortly before midnight from a balcony of the National Palace. Thousands crowd into Mexico Citys central Zocalo square every year to hear the shout, and the celebration usually spills into Garibaldi Plaza. Videos circulating on social media showed musicians in the plaza continuing to play music during and after the shooting Friday night. In one video, a man plucking a large harp continues to belt out the Mexican civil war anthem La CucarachaŽ as dozens of gunshots pierce the night. In another, brass instruments and melancholic voices “ll the air as the ”ashing lights of police vehicles descend on the plaza.Assailants kill 4, injure 9 in Mexican mariachi square AP PHOTOSPolice block access to a crime scene after a shooting in Plaza Garibaldi in Mexico City, Friday.

JERUSALEM (AP) „ An American law professor was detained by Israeli police for allegedly trying to block Israeli troops in a West Bank village slated for demolition, his Israeli lawyer said Saturday. Frank Romano, 66, is being held at a lockup in Jerusalem and is to appear before an Israeli military court Monday, said attorney Gaby Lasky. She said she is trying to get a hearing sooner, before a civil court. Romano, who reportedly also has French citizenship, was detained Friday in the embattled village of Khan al-Ahmar, along with two Palestinian activists. Romano stood in front of heavy equipment being used to clear barriers that had been set up to slow demolition, witnesses said. Israeli police said three people were detained for causing disturbances. Romano was initially taken to a West Bank police station where he brie”y met with activists from an Israeli-Palestinian group, Combatants for Peace. Nahoum Oltchik, a member of the group, said Romano told him he had started a hunger strike and would refrain from eating until Israel had halted plans to raze Khan al-Ahmar, a hamlet of 180 Palestinians. Romanos LinkedIn page says that he teaches law, literature, history and philosophy at the Universit Paris Ouest Nanterre La Dfense in France, and that he practices law in the U.S. and France.American professor detained by Israel in West Bank scuffle AP PHOTOIn this Friday “le photo, Israeli border police arrest American university professor Frank Romano, center top, in the West Bank Bedouin.

A spokesman for Aachen police said Saturday that authorities have ordered journalists out of the area while “re“ghters investigate the tunnel system beneath Hambach forest. Wolfgang Roethgens said police earlier removed four protesters who had chained themselves to a facility at the Niederaussem lignite-“red power station near the strip mine. Police entered the forest earlier in the week to remove protesters who have been camping in the trees and trying to stop the ancient woodland from being cut down. Environmental groups argue that the forest should be spared because Germany will stop the extraction and burning of coal in the coming years.Austria: 6 deportees set fire to cell, leave farewell noteBERLIN (AP) „ Austrian police say six men have been hospitalized with serious injuries after setting alight the mattresses and bedding of the deportation cell in which they were being held. Vienna police said Saturday that “ve Afghans and an Iranian man tried to block the cell door with a locker and left a joint farewell note expressing anguish about their imminent deportations. Of“cers were able to force open the cell and some 70 “re“ghters tackled the blaze late Friday. Police say the men, ranging in age from 18 to 31, are in intensive care. Fourteen other people, including at least three police of“cers, were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.At least 9 killed in extremist attacks in Burkina FasoOUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) „ Authorities in Burkina Faso say extremists have killed at least nine civilians in two attacks in the countrys east. The governorate of the eastern region says six people including an imam were killed in one attack on a mosque in the community of Diabiga. In Fridays other attack, three members of a family were shot dead in Kompienga province. Until now, extremists in that part of the West African country have largely targeted security forces. President Roch Marc Christian Kabore recently announced that the country would put an end to destabilization activityŽ in the east, where extremist attacks have been increasing. Since then more troops have been sent to the region, where extremists use the forests as hideouts. HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLDWORLD/STATE NEWS

We bought them at $29. The stockbroker we trust, who built us a good portfolio over 11 years, disliked his “rm and moved to another company. I didnt move my account, and it was given to a nice 30ish broker. This new guy wants me to sell BWXT. I have a good pro“t. What do you think? „ TL, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Dear TL: I think you ought to kiss this nice pubescent broker goodbye and join your previous broker. You dont need another learning experience, which could destroy the good harmony of your account. BWX Technologies (BWXT-$61) is a nuclear power generation company that was a 2015 spinoff from Babcock & Wilcox. It has three reporting divisions: 1) BWXT Nuclear Operations Group builds nuclear reactors that are the power source for all 14 of the U.S. Navys nuclear submarines and all 10 U.S. aircraft carriers. Meanwhile, Congress has mandated that the Navy consider nuclear power for its cruisers, destroyers and amphibious assault ships. And my BWXT source tells me that owners of some of the huge cruise ships and ginormous oil tankers are considering nuclear power generation. There could be signi“cant operational savings because the operating costs of nuclear reactors are much lower than those of nearly all fuel competitors. However, the cost of building a very large crude carrier (1,100 feet long with 250,000 deadweight tonnage) with a nuclear reactor is about $255 million, whereas the cost of building a diesel-powered VLCC with 250,000 deadweight tonnage is about $125 million. 2) BWXT Technical Services Group provides environmental and disposal services to the U.S. government and public utilities. Nuclear subs, aircraft carriers and utilities have high levels of radioactive waste. The nuclear reactor components are cut out, carefully sealed and taken to approved disposal sites. Until 1973, the Navy discharged all of its liquid radioactive waste in the ocean „ at least 12 miles from shore. BWXTs other major customers are names such as Florida Power & Light, Duke Energy, Southern, Dominion Energy, American Electric Power and PPL. 3) BWXT Nuclear Energy designs and builds steam generators plus various components and services for utilities that have nuclear plants. There are 99 nuclear power reactors (plus two under construction) in 30 states, operated by 30 utilities. And the U.S. is the worlds largest producer of nuclear power, producing 810 billion kilowatt-hours, which is 21 percent of the total U.S. electrical output. And theres a powerful amount of future business designing, building and servicing nuclear plants on Navy ships. According to an old Navy source, theres more nuclear-powered ships a-comin than you can shake a wave at.Ž BWXT is certainly among the top technology companies servicing a private industry in which theres signi“cant potential growth over the coming dozen years. BWXT has the skills and manpower to design, license, produce and deliver nuclear steam generators, pressure vessels, reactor components and containers for the storage of nuclear waste. This fascinating company has been public for a tad over three years. BWXTs “rst year as a public company saw $1.4 billion in revenues and earnings of $1.31 a share. In 2016, revenues were up to $1.5 billion, and earnings were $1.76 a share. Last year, revenues were $1.7 billion, and earnings were $2.01 a share. Headquartered in Lynchburg, Virginia, 6,200 employees should put $1.8 billion on the books this year, and with continually improving net pro“t margins, share earnings should top $2.50. A company representative told me that BWXTs revenues should reach $2 billion next year, and share earnings could come in at $2.90. And BWXTs research and development division is generating new ideas for safer and less costly disposal of radioactive waste. The company should capitalize on this over the coming years. Analysts believe that by 2022, revenues will top $2.3 billion, the company will post earnings of $4.10 a share and the dividend, which was 12 cents in 2015, will be $1.10. So, the consensus on Wall Street places BWXTs shares near the $120 level in the coming four years. T. Rowe Price, Vanguard, BlackRock, American Funds and Wells Fargo must agree, as they are signi“cant shareholders. Email Malcolm Berko at nuclear investment MalcolmBERKOCBy LINDSAY WHITEHURSTASSOCIATED PRESSSALT LAKE CITY „ Once an accomplished organ player in Salt Lake City, Wanda Barzee became a disturbing “gure for members of her own family after she helped in the 2002 kidnapping of then-teenager Elizabeth Smart. Days before the 72-year-old woman is released from prison, looming fears about whether she remains a threat and calls to keep her off the streets bring up deep-rooted questions about mental-health treatment in the nations prisons, an expert said. And details of the crime still horrify Barzees niece, Tina Mace. It just makes you ill. How could anyone do that?Ž she said. Her aunt played the organ at her wedding decades ago, before Barzee joined Mitchell as he acted on his so-called revelations from God. Like Smart, Mace is alarmed by the surprise announcement this week by Utah authorities, who said they had miscalculated her aunts sentence and would release her from prison on Sept. 19 From what I know, no family can take her in or would take her in,Ž Mace said. Federal agents have found a place for Barzee to live when she starts her “ve-year supervised release, said Eric Anderson, the deputy chief U.S. Probation Of“cer for Utah. He declined to say whether shell be in a private home or a facility, but she will not be homeless,Ž he said. Barzee has served the 15-year sentence she got in a plea deal the year she testi“ed against street preacher Brian David Mitchell, her then-husband who kidnapped the girl from her bedroom at knifepoint. During her months in captivity, Smart said the older woman sat nearby and encouraged her husband as he raped the teenager. Smart is now a 30-yearold speaker and activist who said Thursday shes deeply concerned that Barzee remains a threat, citing her refusal to cooperate with mental-health treatment in prison and reports that she may still harbor Mitchells beliefs. Smart called for authorities to consider carefully whether inmates have been successfully treated before they are released. But large-scale changes requiring rehabilitation could pose troubling questions, said Rebecca Weiss, an assistant professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. We could be incarcerating someone inde“nitely who has served their sentence,Ž she said. Treating the disproportionate number of people with mental illness in U.S. prisons „ many of whom are not violent „ is among the systems biggest challenges. While there is a need to protect the public, inmates also have the right to refuse treatment. Repeat violent sex offenders can be civilly committed in the federal system, but that requires a series of evaluations and a judges decision that they pose an imminent risk, Anderson said. Barzees lawyer has maintained shes not a threat. Attorney Scott Williams did not immediately return a message seeking comment. Prison of“cials declined to discuss her behavior behind bars or relay an interview request. She was treated at the Utah State Hospital for about “ve years following her arrest, and testi“ed in 2010 against Mitchell. Barzee described a hellishŽ “rst year of marriage that eased after she learned to be submissive and obedient,Ž and his later pronouncement that it was Gods willŽ they sell their possessions and travel the country wearing long robes. Eventually, Mitchell kidnapped then-14-yearold Smart, forced her into a polygamous marriageŽ and raped her almost daily. She was found nine months later, while walking with Barzee and Mitchell on a street in the Salt Lake City suburb of Sandy. Barzees testimony against him seemed like a turning point, but her mental state appears to have changed in her subsequent years in federal and state prisons, Mace said. Mitchell is serving a life sentence. Looking back on the captivity, Smart said Thursday that she believes the older woman who treated her as a handmaidenŽ and a slaveŽ was manipulated by her husband at times. But she, in her own right, abused me as much as he did.ŽNiece: Family wont take in Elizabeth Smarts kidnapper In this Dec. 10, 2010, “le photo, Brian David Mitchell is escorted by a U.S. Marshall; he is serving a life sentence for kidnapping and rape.

By SUSAN HAIGHASSOCIATED PRESSWELLFLEET, Mass. „ A man boogie boarding off a Cape Cod beach was attacked by a shark on Saturday and died later at a hospital, becoming the states “rst shark attack fatality in more than 80 years. The 26-year-old man from Revere succumbed to his injuries following the attack in the waters off Newcomb Hollow Beach in Well”eet at around noon, Well”eet Police Lt. Michael Hurley said. Life-saving measures were attempted on the beach before the man was taken to Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, where he was pronounced dead, State Police spokesman David Procopio said. The beach has been closed to swimming. The attack is the “rst fatal shark attack in Massachusetts since 1936, and the second shark attack this season. A 61-year-old New York man was severely injured Aug. 15 after “ghting off a shark off Truro, about 4 miles north of Saturdays attack. Hes currently recovering in a Boston hospital. Beachgoers said the Well”eet beach is popular with surfers, and with sunny skies and warm temperatures Saturday it was busy, even though the summer season was over and lifeguards were no longer on watch. Joe Booth, a local “sherman and surfer, said he was on shore when he saw the man and his friend boogie boarding when the attack happened. He said he saw the man aggressively kick something behind him and a ”icker of a tail from the water. He realized what was happening when the friend came ashore dragging his injured friend. I was that guy on the beach screaming, Shark, shark!Ž Booth said. It was like right out of that movie Jaws. This has turned into Amity Island real quick out here.Ž Booth said others on the beach attempted to make a tourniquet while others frantically called 911. Hayley Williamson, a Cape Cod resident and former lifeguard who was on the beach at the time, was in disbelief after the man, who police have not yet identi“ed was rushed in an ambulance. The family of the victim was noti“ed of the death but his name was not released, Procopio said. The states last shark attack fatality was on July 25, 1936, when 16-year-old Joseph Troy Jr. was bitten in waters off Mattapoisett. Troy, of Bostons Dorchester neighborhood, was visiting an uncle and was swimming about 50 feet offshore when the shark attacked.Police: Man dies after shark attack off Cape CodOregon romance writer indicted in husbands deathPORTLAND, Ore. (AP) „ A self-published romance writer being held in her husbands death has now been indicted on a murder charge. Multnomah County District Attorney Rod Underhill announced Friday that a grand jury had returned the indictment against 68-year-old Nancy Crampton Brophy, who was arrested last week in the June killing. Shes accused of shooting her husband of 27 years, Daniel Brophy, at the Oregon Culinary Institute. Daniel Brophy was a well-liked instructor there. He was alone in a kitchen early on June 2 when he was killed, and there were no obvious suspects. Crampton Brophys attorney, Jane Marie Claus, did not immediately return an email seeking comment Friday. She has previously declined to discuss the case. Crampton Brophy once penned an essay titled How to Murder Your Husband.ŽSheriff: Border Patrol agent suspected of killing 4 womenLAREDO, Texas (AP) „ A U.S. Border Patrol agent suspected of killing four women was arrested early Saturday after a “fth woman managed to escape from him and notify authorities, law enforcement of“cials said, describing the agent as a serial killer.Ž Juan David Ortiz, an intel supervisor for the Border Patrol, ”ed from state troopers and was found hiding in a truck in a hotel parking lot in Laredo at around 2 a.m. Saturday, Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar said at a news conference. Cuellar said investigators have very strong evidenceŽ that he is responsible for the deaths of the four women, who are believed to worked as prostitutes. We do consider this to be a serial killer,Ž said Webb County District Attorney Isidro Alaniz.

Francis Tolentino, an adviser to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, said the 12 died mostly in landslides and houses that got pummeled by the storms “erce winds and rain. Among the fatalities were an infant and a 2-year-old child who died with their parents after the couple refused to immediately evacuate from their high-risk community in a mountain town in Nueva Vizcaya province, Tolentino said. They cant decide for themselves where to go,Ž he said of the children, expressing frustration that the tragedy was not prevented. Tolentino, who was assigned by Duterte to help coordinate disaster response, said at least two other people were missing. He said the death toll could climb to at least 16 once other casualty reports were veri“ed. Mayor Mauricio Domogan said at least three people died and six others were missing in his mountain city of Baguio after strong winds and rain destroyed several houses and set off landslides, which also blocked roads to the popular vacation destination. It was not immediately clear whether the deaths and missing cited by Domogan had been included in Tolentinos count. Authorities were verifying the drownings of three people, including two children who reportedly died as the typhoon approached. About 70 men reportedly returned to their coastal village in Cagayan to check on their homes as the storm drew closer Friday, but Tolentino said he had received no reports of the men “guring in an accident. Mangkhuts sustained winds weakened to 105 miles per hour with gusts of up to 161 mph after it sliced northwestward across Luzon before blowing out to the South China Sea, aiming at Hong Kong and elsewhere in southern China. About 87,000 people evacuated from high-risk areas of the Philippines. Tolentino and other of“cials advised them not to return home until the lingering danger had passed. Its still a life and death situation,Ž Defense Secretary Del“n Lorenzana said by phone, citing past drownings in swollen rivers in mountain provinces after storms had passed. Storm warnings remained in effect in 10 northern provinces, including Cagayan, which could still be lashed by devastating winds, forecasters said. Thousands of people in the typhoons path had been evacuated. At daybreak in Cagayans capital, Tuguegarao, Associated Press journalists saw a severely damaged public market, its roof ripped apart and wooden stalls and tarpaulin canopies in disarray. Outside a popular shopping mall, debris was scattered everywhere and government workers cleared roads of fallen trees. Many stores and houses were damaged but most residents remained indoors as occasional gusts sent small pieces of tin sheets and other debris ”ying dangerously. The Tuguegarao airport terminal was badly damaged, its roof and glass windows shattered by strong winds that also sent chairs, tables and papers ”ipping about inside, Lorenzana said. The typhoon struck at the start of the rice and corn harvesting season in Cagayan, a major agricultural producer, prompting farmers to scramble to save what they could of their crops, Cagayan Gov. Manuel Mamba said. A government damage assessment was underway except in areas still being battered by winds and rain. Two air force C-130 cargo planes and 10 helicopters were on standby in Manila, the Philippines capital, to help transport rescuers and aid supplies. In Hong Kong, Security Minister John Lee Ka-chiu urged residents to prepare for the worst as the storm barreled toward the southern Chinese city. Cathay Paci“c said all of its ”ights would be canceled between 2:30 a.m. local time on Sunday and 4 a.m. Monday. Because Mangkhut will bring winds and rains of extraordinary speeds, scope and severity, our preparation and response efforts will be greater than in the past,Ž Lee told a brie“ng on Friday. Each department must have a sense of crisis, make a comprehensive assessment and plan, and prepare for the worst.Ž In nearby Fujian province in China, 51,000 people were evacuated from “shing boats and around 11,000 vessels returned to port on Saturday morning. Chinas National Meteorological Center issued an alert saying Mangkhut would make landfall somewhere on the coast in Guangdong province on Sunday afternoon or evening. Ferry services in the Qiongzhou Strait in southern China were halted on Saturday and helicopters and tugboats were dispatched to Guangdong to transfer offshore workers to safety and warn ships about the typhoon, Chinas of“cial Xinhua News Agency reported. Mangkhut, the Thai word for mangosteen fruit, is the 15th storm this year to batter the Philippines, which is hit by about 20 a year and is considered one of the worlds most disaster-prone countries. In 2013, Typhoon Haiyan left more than 7,300 people dead or missing, ”attened villages, swept ships inland and displaced more than 5 million in the central Philippines.TYPHOONFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (AP) „ President Donald Trump is going ahead with plans to impose new tariffs on about $200 billion of Chinese imports, The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday. Both sides were preparing to hold new talks on their tariff dispute. Last week Trump told reporters such a move could come very soon.Ž The Journal cited unnamed people familiar with the matter who said the tariff level will likely be set at about 10 percent, below the 25 percent announced earlier this year. The two governments have already imposed 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion of each others goods. Beijing has issued a list of another $60 billion of American products for retaliation if Trumps next tariff hike goes ahead. White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters declined comment on the timing of a possible announcement, but said: The President has been clear that he and his administration will continue to take action to address Chinas unfair trade practices. We encourage China to address the long standing concerns raised by the United States.Ž The Chinese foreign ministry said Thursday that it was invited to hold new talks. Envoys from the two countries last met Aug. 22 in Washington but reported no progress. Beijing has rejected pressure from the United States to roll back plans for state-led development of Chinese global champions in robotics, arti“cial intelligence and other “elds. Washington, Europe and other trading partners say those plans violate Chinas market-opening commitments. American of“cials also worry they might erode U.S. industrial leadership. Forecasters have warned that the worsening con”ict between the worlds two biggest traders could cut up to 0.5 percentage point off global economic growth through 2020 if all threatened tariff hikes go ahead. China has tried without success to recruit Germany, France, South Korea and other governments as allies against Washington. Some of them have criticized Trumps tactics but many echo U.S. complaints about Chinese market barriers and industrial strategy.Report: Trump going ahead with plans for new China tariffs AP PHOTOIn this Wednesday “le photo, President Donald Trump arrives to speak at a Congressional Medal of Honor Society reception in the East Room of the White House in Washington. LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) „ Theres no evidence to suggest the gas explosions that rocked communities north of Boston were intentional, a federal investigator said Saturday. As federal of“cials opened their investigation into Thursdays disaster, National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt said that there doesnt appear to be anything nefarious, anything suspicious, anything intentional.Ž He said investigators will be working to develop a timeline going back at least three weeks, including reviewing any reports of gas odors reported by residents in the impacted communities of Lawrence, North Andover and Andover. Investigators will also look at how local Columbia Gas of“cials responded to a pressure increaseŽ in the Lawrence area that was detected at the companys pipeline control center in Columbus, Ohio, prior to the explosions and “res. Were very interested to understand the operations of Columbia Gas,Ž he said. Sumwalt said NTSB investigators expect to be on site up to ten days but a “nal report about what happened could take up to two years to complete. The dramatic series of explosions and “res Thursday destroyed or damaged dozens of homes, killed a teenager, injured dozens and forced thousands of people to evacuate from the three Merrimack Valley communities. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker declared a state of emergency for the area and put Eversource Energy, another utility, in charge of recovery efforts after state and local of“cials said they were unsatis“ed with Columbia Gas response. Company president Stephen Bryant defended his companys performance Friday, saying it had more than 300 workers and contractors responding, with another 100 on the way. Meanwhile, a report of a strong gas odor brought of“cials back to a part of Lawrence most impacted by the explosions and “res Saturday morning. Fire“ghters and gas workers opened manholes, tested gas levels and tried to gain access to businesses on the citys south side, but the situation appeared to be contained by 11:15 a.m. Local of“cials also warned about donation scammers. They said some residents in Lawrence and Andover have received calls from individuals falsely claiming theyre collecting donations on behalf of a local “re“ghters association for the disaster.Investigator: No evidence gas explosions intentional VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP) „ A NASA satellite designed to precisely measure changes in Earths ice sheets, glaciers, sea ice and vegetation was launched into polar orbit from California early Saturday. A Delta 2 rocket carrying ICESat-2 lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base at 6:02 a.m. and headed over the Paci“c Ocean. NASA Earth Science Division director Michael Freilich says that the mission in particular will advance knowledge of how the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica contribute to sea level rise. The melt from those ice sheets alone has raised global sea level by more than 1 millimeter (0.04 inch) a year recently, according to NASA. The mission is a successor to the original Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite that operated from 2003 to 2009. Measurements continued since then with airborne instruments in NASAs Operation IceBridge. Built by Northrop Grumman, ICESat-2 carries a single instrument, a laser altimeter that measures height by determining how long it takes photons to travel from the spacecraft to Earth and back. According to NASA, it will collect more than 250 times as many measurements as the “rst ICESat. The laser is designed to “re 10,000 times per second, divided into six beams of hundreds of trillions of photons. The round trip is timed to a billionth of a second. In addition to ice, the satellites other measurements, such as the tops of trees, snow and river heights, may help with research into the amount of carbon stored in forests, ”ood and drought planning and wild“re behavior, among other uses. The launch was the last for a Delta 2 rocket, United Launch Alliance said. The “rst Delta 2 lifted off on Feb. 14, 1989, and since then it has been the launch vehicle for Global Positioning System orbiters, Earth observing and commercial satellites, and interplanetary missions including the twin Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity.NASA satellite launches to measure Earths ice changes NASA VIA APThe United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta II rocket will measure the changing height of Earths ice.

NEW YORK TIMES SUNDAY CROSSWORDFOR ANSWERS TURN TO PAGE 3No. 0909 Name That CompanyI trace my roots back to a brewery William Bass opened in England in 1777; in 1876, its red triangle was the U.K.s first registered trademark. Bass company expanded into hotels with the 1988 purchase of Holiday Inn International (which excluded most U.S. hotels). A decade later, I bought a hotel company founded by Pan Am airlines founder, and later took its name. I jettisoned my brewery business in 2000, and today Im a hospitality giant, with names such as Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. ance with long-term, tax-sheltered savings plans. The most important thing to understand about these policies is that theyre designed to be held for life, and there are often significant upfront charges involved. These tax-sheltered savings can end up outperforming taxed investments, but that can take 10 to 20 years, and it isnt always worth it. Never opt for cash value insurance without doing a lot of homework. Dont let an aggressive agent sway you with confusing presentations and emotional arguments. (Think of your children!Ž) Remember that term life can last as long as you want, via guaranteed renewable policies. If youre attracted to the investment portion of cash value insurance, know that you can always buy less-expensive term insurance and invest the difference on your own. You stand a good chance of outperforming the insurance company, too. Dont buy more insurance than you need or the wrong kind of insurance. You want to protect and replace the income stream that would be lost if you die, but you neednt set up a lotterylike payout on your death. Le arn more at .The Motley Fool TakeA Prescription for ProfitShares of CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) have had a tough year, dropping in large part due to fears about Amazons potential entry into the pharmacy business. Bears worry that Amazon will leverage its access to big data and its vast online retail network to essentially crush CVS Healths all-important pharmacy services segment, which generated a whopping $33.2 billion in revenue during the second quarter of this year. But this fear is almost certainly overblown. CVS Health has an entrenched competitive position that wont be easily overcome by any would-be competitor „ even Amazon. Its latest quarter featured pharmacy prescription volume at stores open more than a year jumping 9.5 percent over the prior-year period, helping drive overall revenue up 5.7 percent. Contributing factors include continued success for CVS Healths patient care programs, alliances with health plans and other pharmacy benefit managers, inclusion in more Medicare Part D networks and higher brand drug prices. Many investors also like the same-day drug delivery service that the company is rolling out in many cities and have high hopes for its planned merger with Aetna. CVS Healths shares have recently been trading at attractive levels, with a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 10. The stock also sports a dividend that recently yielded 2.6 percent. (The Motley Fool has recommended CVS Health.) Ask the Fool My Dumbest InvestmentConventional Not-So-Wise-DomMy biggest financial blunder was listening to conventional wisdom about diversification. Many years ago, I was living in Austin, Texas, where Dell was based. Dell was growing like gangbusters and was about to go public. Meanwhile, my portfolio was already heavily weighted with shares of Compaq Computer, which was performing well for me. I heeded the old adage to not have too much money in a single industry, so I passed on the Dell shares. I could have made many times my initial investment in it, had I bought some shares. I learned its more important to invest in businesses youre very familiar with than to blindly follow conventional wisdom. „ J.R., Austin, Texas The Fool Responds: The conventional wisdom isnt that silly, as plenty of industries have been hit hard at various times. The airline industry, for example, could get whacked by soaring fuel prices, while pharmaceutical companies might suffer if some reform limits how high they can set prices. If you were that excited about Dell and also wanted to remain invested in Compaq, you might have sold half your Compaq shares and put that money into Dell. Its also worth noting that investing in initial public offerings (IPOs) can be tricky, and its often best to wait a year or so for the stock to settle down. Usually only the most connected investors get the actual initial shares, with others buying at higher prices. Interesting Interest RatesQWhat makes interest rates go up and down? „ C.N., Worcester, MassachusettsAInterest rates are strongly influenced by inflation and the debt market (think Treasury notes, bills, bonds, etc.). Inflation has been low in recent years, averaging about 3 percent annually over decades. Interest rates have started inching up, but are still below average. After all, the prime rate topped 20 percent in 1980.When the economy appears to be growing too briskly, the Federal Reserve can slow growth and keep inflation in check by hiking shortterm interest rates via the federal fundsŽ rate „ the rate a bank can charge another bank for use of its excess money. The Fed also sets the discount rateŽ „ the rate banks pay it to borrow short-term funds. When the economy is sluggish, the Fed will often try to juice it by lowering rates, encouraging companies and people to borrow (and spend!) money. The prime rate, mortgage interest rates and other interest rates are often directly or indirectly influenced by the federal funds rate or the discount rate. The money markets themselves (basic supply and demand for credit) also exert great influence over interest rates.***QIve saved a little money, and I want to invest in stocks. What do I do? „ O.A., Shenandoah, IowaAFirst, pay off any high-interest-rate debt and fund an emergency account with at least several months worth of living expenses.

Heres a review of what you should know. For starters, understand that life insurance is meant to protect an income stream. If anyone, such as your children or your parents, depends on your income, life insurance can protect it. If youre single or have no dependents, though, you probably dont need life insurance. Next, know that there are two main types of life insurance: termŽ and cash value.Ž With term insurance, your premium payments are applied entirely to the cost of the insurance, and coverage is easily stopped when its no longer needed (such as when your kids are selfsupporting). Term insurance is simple and effective. Cash value insurance, meanwhile, encompasses whole life, universal life and variable life policies, among others.

The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 E/N/C Page 7 CROSSWORD PUZZLE DEAR ABBY HELOISE JUMBLE DEAR ABBY: My daughter has decided to leave her husband. They have been married for 20 years. She says she hasnt been happy for several years and that its time to take care of herself. She wont be able to support herself and the children, but she doesnt seem able to grasp that reality. When I voice my concerns, she gets angry with me. Shes determined to go forward with this separation and says her kids will be ne.Ž I say thats bull! She has also embraced an exercise and eating plan that seems radical to me and has a life coach who is also a psychic. I think shes having a midlife crisis. If it werent for what this is going to do to my grandchildren, Id keep my mouth shut, but Im sick with worry. Her siblings think she has lost her mind, so she has pretty much cut herself o from the family. When she became frustrated because she wasnt able to qualify for a house she wanted to rent, she lashed out at me. Im waiting for an apology, but Im realistic that Ill probably never get one. I feel like Im in mourning over the loss of this child. What do I do? „ SHAKEN UP IN TEXAS DEAR SHAKEN UP: Your daughter is an adult. By now you must have realized you can no longer control her behavior. For the sake of your own mental health, accept that shes going to make her own mistakes. Do not accept nancial responsibility for your daughter. Be as supportive of your grandchildren as you can be, because at some point you may have to take them in. As for her psychic life coach,Ž you should know that unlike physicians, psychologists and social workers, life coaches do not belong to any organization that requires them to adhere to ethical standards. Your daughter should be made aware that there may be some risk involved in placing her future in that persons hands. DEAR ABBY: A dear friend and I decided to visit our old friend, Carol,Ž who has been in an assisted living facility for a year. Carol has some dementia, but we took her „ arm in arm „ to a pizza restaurant at our mall. After we were seated and browsing the menu, a very handsome gentleman approached our table. He said we reminded him of his mother and insisted on treating us to dinner. We thanked him, he laid down a $100 bill and disappeared. We enjoyed a great dinner and left the change ($35) for the server. We would like to thank that gentleman. He made our day. „ GRATEFUL IN GEORGIA DEAR GRATEFUL: Your letter made MY day. Occasionally, I print letters about acts of kindness, and yours denitely qualies. You and your friend were performing a good deed by taking your friend for lunch, and it was paid forward in record time. Its nice knowing there are good people out there.

I want to know whats the best and safest way to clean a dusty screen and what products I should use. I dont want to harm the screen. „ Janet from South Carolina Its a good idea to be cautious because that TV screen should be cleaned very carefully. Read the manufacturers manual before you clean it. Some screens have an antiglare coating that might be damaged by some cleaners. Before cleaning, unplug the TV. Wipe the screen with a soft, clean lint-free cloth and go over it lightly. Hard pressure could damage the surface. Never spray any cleaner directly onto the screen. Also, wipe o dust from the back of the TV. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: We had a fun dinner party, and one of my guests spilled a glass of red wine on my tablecloth. How can I remove the stain? „ Maureen from New Jersey This is a common occurrence at parties! If the tablecloth is washable, heres how to remove the stain: „When the wine is spilled, try to deal with it as soon as you can. Pour a healthy amount of salt or articial sweetener over the wine spill and pat it in. This will absorb the liquid. „Place the tablecloth in cold water to remove more of the red stain. „Soak the tablecloth for 30 minutes in an enzyme detergent and cold water. „Launder as you usually do. When the stain is gone, put the tablecloth in the dryer.„ Heloise Dear Heloise: Several members of my family have stinky shoes and/or smelly feet. What can I do to help them reduce the odor? „ Susan from Los Angeles As long as the odor is not caused by a medical condition, they can try these hints: „Always wash feet thoroughly and dry completely. „To remove the smell, apply an antibacterial soap or soak feet in household vinegar for ve minutes at night. „Spritz feet with deodorant before putting on socks. „Airing out shoes and pouring a bit of baking soda inside also will help neutralize odors.„ Heloise Dear Readers: If you have children dropping by your house after school, you can make these favorite kid snacks quickly. First, melt miniature marshmallows. Mix the rice cereal with the melted marshmallow cream. Butter a pan and press this mixture into it. If your children like the treats cool, place the pan in the refrigerator for a short time. „ Heloise Dear Heloise: We just bought our rst home with carpeting. While I was vacuuming, I noticed that our furniture had made dents in the carpet. How can I get rid of these ugly dents? „ Tina from Texas If you keep furniture in the same place in your living room or elsewhere, it will make dents in the carpet. To prevent this, move your furniture around. Take these steps to remove the dents: Place an ice cube in each dent and allow it to melt slowly. Let the moisture remain until its melted. Blot up any leftover moisture inside the dents. Use your ngers to u up the carpet. „ HeloiseParent doesnt support any of the choices made by adult daughterDear Abby Hints from Heloise

Authorities ordered the immediate evacuation of up to 7,500 people living within a mile of a stretch of the Cape Fear River and the Little River, about 100 miles from the coast. The evacuation zone included part of the city of Fayetteville, population 200,000. Of“cials in nearby Harnett County urged residents of about 1,100 homes to clear out because the Lower Little River was rising toward record levels. One potential road out was blocked as ”ooding forced the shutdown of a 16-mile stretch of Interstate 95, the main highway along the Eastern Seaboard. In New Bern, along the coast, homes were completely surrounded by water, and rescuers used in”atable boats to reach people. Kevin Knox and his family were rescued from their ”ooded brick home with the help of Army Sgt. Johan Mackie, part of a team using a phone app to locate people in distress. Mackie rode in a boat through a ”ooded neighborhood, navigating through trees and past a fencepost to get to the Knox house. Amazing. They did awesome,Ž said Knox, who was stranded with seven others, including a boy who was carried out in a life vest. If not, wed be stuck upstairs for the next ... how long? I have no idea.Ž New Bern spokeswoman Colleen Roberts said 455 people in all were rescued in the town of 30,000 residents without any serious injuries or deaths. But thousands of buildings were damaged in destruction Roberts called heart-wrenching.Ž Across the Trent River from New Bern, Jerry and Jan Andrews returned home after evacuating to “nd carp ”opping in their backyard near the porch stairs. Coast Guard helicopters were taking off across the street to rescue stranded people from rooftops and swamped cars. Coast Guard members said choppers had made about 50 rescues in and around New Bern and Jacksonville as of noon. Marines rescued about 20 civilians from ”oodwaters near Camp Lejeune, using Humvees and amphibious assault vehicles, the base reported. In Lumberton, about 80 miles inland, Jackie and Quinton Washington watched water “lling both their front and back yards near the Lumber River. Hurricane Matthew sent more than 5 feet of water into their home in 2016, and the couple feared Florence would run them out again. If it goes up to my front step, I have to get out,Ž Quintin Washington said. The dead included a mother and baby killed when a tree fell on a house in Wilmington, North Carolina. South Carolina recorded its “rst death from the storm, with of“cials saying a 61-year-old woman was killed when her car hit a tree that had fallen across a highway. Three died in one inland county, Duplin, because of water on roads and ”ash ”oods, the sheriffs of“ce said. A husband and wife died in a house “re linked to the storm, of“cials said, and an 81-year-old man died after falling and hitting his head while packing to evacuate. Retired Marine Garland King and his wife, Katherine, evacuated their home in New Bern on Friday and returned Saturday, sharing a kiss and joining hands as they drew near their house. It was tough. Wobbling. I was looking for water moccasins to hit me at any time,Ž he said. They “nally made it, and found a soggy, stinking mess. The carpets. The ”oors. Everything is soaking wet,Ž Katherine King said. Were going to have to redo the whole inside.Ž The National Hurricane Center said Florence broke a North Carolina rainfall record that had stood for almost 20 years: Preliminary reports showed Swansboro got more than 30 inches and counting, obliterating the mark set in 1999, when Hurricane Floyd dropped just over 24 inches on the state. As of noon, Emerald Isle had more than 23 inches of rain, and Wilmington and Goldsboro had about a foot. North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, had around 7 inches. Stream gauges across the region showed water levels rising steadily, with forecasts calling for rivers to crest Sunday and Monday at or near record levels. The Little River, the Cape Fear, the Lumber, the Neuse, the Waccamaw and the Pee Dee were all projected to rise over their banks, ”ooding cities and towns. Forecasters said the storm will eventually break up over the southern Appalachians and make a sharp rightward swing to the northeast, its rainy remnants moving into the mid-Atlantic states and New England by the middle of the week.FLORENCEFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOA sailboat is shoved up against a house and a collapsed garage Saturday after heavy wind and rain from Florence, now a tropical storm, blew through New Bern, N.C.

Trailing 19-7 early in the fourth quarter, Barnett cut the Illinois lead with a 14-yard pass to Salomon to make it 19-14.

After another South Florida stop, Barnett connected with Salomon from 50 yards to score with 2:24 left to give the Bulls a 25-19 lead. For the second straight week, the Bulls rallied against a Power Five school. Last week, they scored 21 unanswered in the fourth quarter against Georgia Tech. It was very similar to last week. We unfortunately put us in this position where we had to do that,Ž said Barnett. We had to make something happen.

Epstein rushed for 113 yards on 19 carries.By CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENTPUNTA GORDA … Its been a trying time for most area swim teams with the weather being what it is this time of year. Charlotte High School has especially felt it. Conditioning has fallen off as swimmers sit out one lightning delay after another, which in turn doesnt allow them to work on the “ner points of their sport. Despite that, and having only 10 boys competing, Charlotte was able to “nish fourth at the Tarpon Invitational on Saturday at South County Regional Park. Venice took the boys overall title. Like most other teams, they didnt exactly knock everything out of the park. Coaches can do a lot, but they cant change the weather. We were tired. The weather has been affecting us with practice time. Getting more consistency with practice and training is the big thing,Ž Charlotte coach Jeff Cain said. We swam well, right at our times. It wasnt horrible, but not what were able to do right now.Ž Casey Keller, who reached the podium in the relays and placed in the top 10 in the 200 and 500 freestyles, said the weather has had an impact. Weve gotten out of practice in the afternoon because of lightning. Not being able to train consistently has been a setback, but were making due,Ž Keller said. Were doing better than expected considering all the lightning. There have been rough practices and conditioning is an issue. The Tarpons “nished third in the 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays. Dylan Hacker placed second in the 100 breaststroke and third in the 200 IM. Joshua Eaton was second in the 50 freestyle and third in the 100 breaststroke, and Carl Eisen was third in the 100 freestyle. By NOAH TRISTERAP SPORTS WRITERTOLEDO, Ohio „ Malik Rosier threw for two touchdowns and ran for three more, and No. 21 Miami outlasted upset-minded Toledo 49-24 on Saturday. The Hurricanes (2-1) never trailed and led 21-0 late in the “rst half, but Toledo (1-1) twice pulled back to within a touchdown. Even then, however, the defending MidAmerican Conference champion couldnt stop Rosier and Miami. Rosier threw for 205 yards and ran for 80, and Jeff Thomas had “ve catches for 105 yards and a TD. The Hurricanes lost standout safety Jaquan Johnson late in the second quarter to an apparent injury. He was back on the sideline using a stationary bike during the second half, but Miamis defense was not the same without him. Toledo scored touchdowns on its last possession of the “rst half and its “rst two of the second, but the early hole was too much to overcome. Mitchell Guadagni threw for two TDs for the Rockets. Rosier scored on runs of 5 and 2 yards By MARK LONGAP SPORTS WRITERGAINESVILLE, Fla. „ Freddie Swain scored twice, including on an 85-yard punt return, and Florida beat Colorado State 48-10 Saturday in a game dubbed the Buyout Bowl.Ž Feleipe Franks also threw two touchdown passes, giving him nine in three games and matching his total from last season. The Gators (2-1) were far from perfect offensively, though, “nishing with 341 yards or more than 200 fewer than the Rams (1-3) had been giving up this season. Franks had a few highlights, including an 18-yard strike to Swain in the second quarter and an even better deep ball to Van Jefferson in the fourth. Jordan Scarlett had a 30-yard touchdown run in the second, his “rst trip to the end zone in nearly two years. The Gators were otherwise average on that side of the ball. Special teams were a different story. Tyrie Cleveland recovered a blocked punt for a score, and Swain delivered the fourth-longest punt return for a touchdown in school history. That was enough to put away the Rams in a game that served as a reminder of ex-coach Jim McElwains success at Colorado State and his failure at Florida. The Gators will pay the Rams a whopping $2 million for the game, part of McElwains $7 million buyout to leave Fort Collins for Gainesville late in the 2014 season. McElwain didnt last long enough at Florida to be around for the game against his former team. He is now the receivers coach at Michigan. Franks completed 8 of 15 passes for 119 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception. Scarlett ran six times for 56 yards.Miami rolls past Toledo 49-24 AP PHOTOMiami Hurricanes wide receiver Je Thomas catches a touchdown pass against Toledo during the “rst half of the game.MIAMI | 8Tarpon boys do more with less SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNO Port Charlottes Kevin Janson-Dugar competes in the 200 YD Freestyle event at the Tarpon Invite held on Saturday.TARPON | 3Swain scores twice, Florida handles Colorado State 48-10 AP PHOTOFlorida running back Jordan Scarlett runs during the second half of Saturdays game.FLORIDA | 8 PREP SPORTS: Tarpon Invite CFB: Miami 49, Toledo 24 CFB: USF 25, Illinois 19 CFB: Florida 48, Colorado State 10Barnett rallies USF to 25-19 winUSF | 8 PUNTA GORDA PORT CHARLOTTE NORTH PORT ENGLEWOOD VENICE SARASOTA BRADENTON NAPLES FT.

PETERSBURG, Fla. „ Jake Bauers hit a three-run homer off Jeurys Familia in the eighth inning to help the Tampa Bay Rays set back the playoff-chasing Oakland Athletics with a 7-5 win Saturday night. Oakland remains 1 1/2 games behind the Yankees for the top AL wild card after New York lost to Toronto earlier in the day. The As have dropped two of three since winning six straight. Bauers homer was just the second allowed by Familia (4-2) since he was acquired by Oakland on July 21 from the Mets. Bauers busted a 4-for-65 slump with three hits and four RBIs. Andrew Kittredge (22) retired Mark Canha with the bases loaded in the eighth to preserve a 4-4 tie and win a game in which both teams used relievers as openers. Tampa Bay and Oakland have been at the forefront of that trend this season. Sergio Romo got his 20th save despite giving up a homer to Matt Chapman in the ninth. It was Chapmans 23rd homer. Brandon Lowe hit a two-run homer in the second to put Tampa Bay ahead, and Jed Lowrie made it 2-1 in the third with a single off Yonny Chirinos. Chirinos then retired 10 in a row before Matt Olson tied it in the sixth with his 27th home run. Kevin Kiermaier hit an RBI triple and scored on Bauers sacrifice fly for a 4-2 lead in the sixth, but Canhas pinch-hit double helped the As tie it at 4 in the seventh.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: OF Chad Pinder was in the leadoff spot after stumbling over the bullpen mound while chasing a foul ball Friday night.

By TOM JONESTIMES SPORTS COLUMNISTBRANDON „ Was the Lightning asleep at the wheel when superstar defenseman Erik Karlsson was traded from Ottawa to San Jose on Thursday? Did Steve Yzerman stepping aside as Lightning general manager distract the franchise from making a move on Karlsson? Was the Lightning ever close to getting Karlsson? The answer to all three of these questions is no. Will the Lightning regret not adding one of the best defensemen of his generation? That remains to be seen. No doubt, Lightning fans are frustrated and maybe even a little angry that the Lightning didnt pull off the trade for Karlsson, especially after seeing how little the Sharks gave up. But heres the real deal behind the deal: The Lightning was never that close to getting Karlsson and was unlikely to ever pull off such a trade. The Senators had little interest in trading Karlsson within their own division. That eliminated the Lightning unless Tampa Bay was willing to give up a kings ransom. And even then it appears the Senators werent committed. In the end, Karlsson coming to Tampa Bay was nothing more than wishful thinking for Lightning fans. For months there had been speculation that the Senators, about to begin a major rebuilding project, were going to trade the 28-year-old Karlsson, who can become a free agent after this season. A bunch of teams started lining up and the rumor mill put the Lightning at the top of the list to land the former two-time Norris Trophy winner. Much of that had to do with a fun scene at the NHL All-Star Game in Tampa. Karlsson hung around with good friend, fellow Swede and Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman. Karlsson dressed up like a pirate during Gasparilla and it looked like Tampa Bay and Karlsson were winking and playing footsie with one another. Rumors heated up even more during the summer. A handful of teams seemed to be in on the Karlsson sweepstakes. Again, the Lightning was on the list with a variety of scenarios, other teams and big-time names being ”oated as trade bait. Names included veterans such as Ryan Callahan, Tyler Johnson and Alex Killorn. Brayden Point seemed untouchable, but his name came up, too. Young defenseman Mikhail Sergachev seemed like a name that made the most sense. But nothing ever happened. Until Thursday. Thats when the Senators sent Karlsson and minor-leaguer to San Jose for what seems like an underwhelming haul: forwards Chris Tierney and Rudolfs Balcers, prospect Josh Norris, defenseman Dylan DeMelo, a conditional 2019 second-round draft pick, a conditional 2020 “rst-round draft pick and a conditional 2021 second-round draft pick. Heck, couldnt the Lightning do better than that? Sergachev, a prospect and a couple of picks, maybe? Again, the Senators did not want to trade Karlsson to Tampa Bay or anywhere in the Eastern Conference. That became evident when Ottawa attached an interesting piece to the trade. If the Sharks are to ”ip Karlsson to an Eastern Conference team, they have to give Ottawa a “rst-round pick. But this needs to be pointed out: While it appears the Lightning was never all that close in getting Karlsson, it never totally gave up on the idea and kept in touch with Ottawa. Now, a cynical fan would suggest that, perhaps, the Lightning lost focus and dropped off the Karlsson radar as it was trying to shift the duties of general manager from Yzerman to Julien BriseBois. While that was being sorted out, the Sharks snuck in and snatched Karlsson away. Thats not the case. First off, BriseBois has always been in on every trade conversation that Lightning has had. He has been Yzermans right-hand man and Yzerman never made any deal without consulting with BriseBois and others in the organization. As far as the shifting of general manager duties, while the official announcement was made on Tuesday, the baton from Yzerman and BriseBois had been passed well before then, perhaps even weeks ago. So, last question: will the Lightning regret not getting Karlsson? Theres no doubt that Karlsson is a special player. But to get him, the Lightning would have had to give up at least a couple of major pieces off its current roster and then find the money under the salary cap to sign Karlsson to a hefty long-term deal. That would have weakened the overall roster now and in the future. The Lightning has a Stanley Cup contender without Karlsson. While this might seem hard to believe, the Lightning doesnt need Karlsson. Not that it was ever close to getting him anyway.

Coming off a successful title defense two weeks ago in Calgary, Alberta, played an early three-hole stretch in 4 under „ making an eagle on the par-4 12th. He had six birdies and a bogey on his second nine, birdieing the last three and four of the “nal “ve. I made a lot of putts. I drove the ball well, which youve got to do here,Ž McCarron said. Youve got to put the ball in play “rst and then youve got to make a lot of putts, and today I was able to make a bunch of putts.Ž He chipped in on the par-4 ninth for his “nal birdie. I had a decent lie there. It wasnt a dif“cult chip, but it wasnt one I was really thinking about making,Ž McCarron said. But I hit a beautiful chip there and it just rolled right in, caught the left edge. Great way to “nish.Ž Lehman shot his second straight 67, and Maggert had a 68 to match McCarron at 10-under 135. The 49-year-old Lehman won in Iowa in June for his 11th senior title. Unless somebody just goes crazy, its always been the case that the course tends to bunch the players,Ž Lehman said. If you drive it well, youre going to be able to attack pins, and the greens are so perfect, youre going to make putts. So scores tend to be low here and theres going to be a lot of guys shooting low, so theres the possibility for “reworks tomorrow.Ž The 53-year-old McCarron has seven PGA Tour Champions victories, also winning in Wisconsin in June. He won three times on the PGA Tour. Ive had a lot of opportunities over the last couple months to win tournaments and my game feels good,Ž McCarron said. Yesterday I played very nicely, I just didnt make any putts, so today I was able to play well and “nally the putts started dropping.Ž Mark OMeara had a 64 to join Tom Byrum (66), Paul Broadhurst (68) and Esteban Toledo (69) at 9 under. Its obviously very exciting to come back,Ž the 61-year-old OMeara said. Were thrilled that Ally stepped up to the plate to bring golf back to the Grand Blanc-Flint area, come back to Warwick Hills, where we played so many times on the PGA Tour. Its brought back a lot of fond memories.ŽMcCarron shoots 63 for share of Warwick Hills lead GOLF: Champions Tour

Riverview won the girls title. Port Charlotte brought many more swimmers from its young team and the inexperience showed as nobody on the boys or girls teams made the top three. As a rebuilding team, they did improve on their times, which made coach J.R. Whaley very happy. We did pretty well. It was good way to end the early part of the season for us,Ž Whaley said. We got some fast times on the kids.

The Pirates were sixth in the 200-freestyle relay. The boys swam well in the relays, while Kevin Janson-Dugan “nished sixth in the 100 backstroke and Oscar Marquardt was fourth in the breaststroke. Karl Myers was among those who improved, lopping off time in the 200 and 500 freestyle. I knew my team was cheering me on and I didnt want to let them down. They help me a lot.

Brumbaughs father introduced him to the game of golf as a 3-year-old. I have a passion for it,Ž said Brumbaugh, who lists Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy as two players he enjoys watching. Jacob Smith decided to follow in his fathers footsteps. playing golf the past four years, his father is Richard Smith, who is the chairman of the Golf Links of Charlotte Harbor and of the Charlotte Harbor National Golf Club. It was a familial matter for Jackson Varner as well, who was introduced to the game by his grandfather. Varner went from cutting greens and fairways, to working on his game on the links. However, there are two members of the team, who werent introduced to the game until recently, Connor Croke, only began playing seriously four months ago, picking up the game at the suggestion of his father. Hes worked hard,Ž said Harvey. He has a very athletic swing. He has to learn the golf mind set and to manage the course. He hits a 5-iron longer than most people hit a driver. He hit an 8-iron 175 yards and almost holed out at the Venice Country Club.Ž Bryce Hayse began taking golf more seriously during his sophomore year. Bryce is also a baseball player,Ž said Harvey. Hes learning the game.Ž Niko Duggins moved to Punta Gorda from Chicago, and has impressed Harvey with his driving and long iron play. The Tarpons had a strong showing in the St. John Neumann Invitational at the Hibiscus Golf Club in Naples. Several team members posted personal bests for 18 holes. Billy Brumbaugh “nished fourth overall, carding a 72. Jacob Smith recorded a 73. Bryce Hayse was 8-over par and Connor Croke, playing in his “rst 18 hole tournament “nished with an 89. Jackson Varner “nished the round with a 99. Billy played a very solid round of golf with his even par 72,Ž said Harvey. Im looking forward to seeing him strive to best that score in districts. Our Sergeant Hulka of the team, Jacob Smith, also had a good day with a bunch of birdies. Then theres Bruce who took off eight strokes from his best. Tarpon golf is heating up and is fun to watch!Ž The Tarpons were in action on Saturday in the Lakewood Ranch Invitational and Jacob Smith led the Tarpons carding a 77 for 18 holes. Brumbaugh posted a score of 81, Hayse and Croke both shot 98, Varner 98 and Duggins 106. Jacob returned with a good 77 from 6800 yards,Ž said Harvey. As a team, we struggled with the course playing longer, but Jacob was right there. I think the longer the better for that guy.ŽTarpons golf features strong nucleus VARNER HAYSE SMITH BRUMBAUGH By BEN BAUGHSPORTS EDITORTheres a new amenity at the Wallace Keller Stadium Complex. A new giant screen will allow spectators, athletes and students to get a closer look at the action on the “eld. The project has been years in the making, according to Wallace Keller, Charlotte Tarpons booster club board member.The screen was in operation at Friday nights Tarpons football game vs. Ida Baker, with Charlotte High School student Thomas Kontos manning the controls. For the past 30 years, the booster club has held a number of fundraisers, and through the support of the organization, the school and the community, have seen a number of projects come to fruition. Were really proud that we can do something like this,Ž said Keller. Were happy to be able to participate in something like this, and for the community, thats really who this is for. Weve been working on this for almost three years. This was on a trailer. It was a portable unit at one point.Ž However, its not just the screens presence at the stadium that has people brimming with enthusiasm and optimism, its the variables and components that are behind the scenes, providing life to an entity that a short time ago was only an idea on paper and a topic of discussion. The coolest thing about this is it isnt teacher driven, its student driven,Ž said Brian Nolan, Charlotte High School athletic director. We have a TV class that will be running the board. Theyll be in a control room and there will be a producer. Theyll have two people on computers and theyll be directing the show.Ž The next Tarpons home game will feature wireless cameras, another production component that should make the game more entertaining for the fans, said Bill Markstahler, Charlotte High School booster club board member. The students who are involved with the presentation, earn class credit and it serves as an invaluable resource, allowing students to gain practical experience, something they can put on their resume when theyre applying for jobs. The screen will be used for a variety of events, including Relay for Life, Hall of Fame night, Senior Movie Night and Homecoming, said Markstahler.A different perspective SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNO Charlottes new video screen will bring spectators closer to the action.

The Venice Indians jumped out to an early lead over Tampa Plant and were cruising along with a 13-5 advantage. But after a Panther timeout, the momentum began to shift. Venice held on to capture the “rst game, but Plant came back to win the title, 23-25, 25-19, 15-6. We started off the match like bandits, but I really think the match was lost in the second half of the “rst game,Ž Indians coach Brian Wheatley said. We had a really good lead on them, 15-8, and even though they didnt win that “rst game, they got a lot of momentum. We kind of took our foot off the pedal, they got a lot of momentum and they carried that into the second game and then obviously into the third game.Ž Plant closed within a point at the end of game one before Paige Canevari “nished it off with a kill. The second game was much closer, with Venice maintaining a slight advantage before the Panthers took their “rst lead of the afternoon at 109. After a Venice timeout, the Indians ran off “ve straight points behind the serving of freshman Ireland Ferguson to take a 15-13 lead. But Plant rallied back, and the score was tied four more times before the Panthers scored seven of the last eight points to even the match. The third game was all Panthers. Following a 1-1 tie, Plant reeled off ten straight points to take a commanding lead and held on from there. The third game was all heart,Ž Plant coach Vanja Todorovic said. This team from Venice really knows the game and plays very well. Our girls really upped their game and upped their level and played very, very well. Venice always gives us good competition and pushes us outside of our comfort zone. Today we played one of our best games.Ž Plant deserved to win it. They were hungrier than us,Ž Wheatley said. Its just something that weve got to learn from and move forward.Ž I told the girls that none of our goals have been destroyed ,Ž Wheatley continued. Obviously its hard to lose the “rst match of the season but weve got to take the next step and grow from it. I never like to lose, but when I do, when the other team deserves to win, Im the “rst one to say they deserved to win. Plant deserved to win the match. They played better than us.Ž The Indians defeated Ransom Everglades, Clearwater Central Catholic, and Barron Collier in pool play, then disposed of Ocala Forest in the semi“nals. With its “rst defeat of the season, Venice fell to 12-1 on the season, while Plant remained unbeaten at 11-0. Paige Canevari was incredible this whole weekend. Just made a lot of great sets,Ž Wheatley said. I thought Sadie Kluner was incredible on the right side and our middles (Carley Faulkner and Aja Jones) played well too. Paradise Gibson had a great tournament as well. Tournaments are two out of three, so its not like you have time to recover.ŽTampa Plant takes beach volleyball tournament AREA SPORTS: Charlotte Tarpons PREP VOLLEYBALL: Tampa Plant 2, Venice 1 PREP SHOWCASE: Charlotte Tarpons boys golf

All three big-name coaches had to navigate challenging debut seasons at big-time programs. Each would weather the storm and play for a national championship soon enough, but it was a long road to get there. Thats never easy,Ž said Smart, now in his third season. I dont think thats an easy transition for anybody.Ž After just two games at Florida, Dan Mullen is “nding out, once again, just how dif“cult a coaching changeover can be. The Gators (1-1) enter Saturdays visit from Colorado State (1-2) following UFs “rst loss to Kentucky since 1986. Galen Hall was the Gators coach then, and “ve more would follow Hall before Mullens arrival. Two, Meyer and Steve Spurrier, would win national titles. Hall and three others would be “red, each within four seasons. Unlike Ron Zook, Will Muschamp and Jim McElwain, Mullen arrived at UF with a proven track record as an SEC head coach, turning West Division doormat Mississippi State into a competitive program. Yet in college footballs most competitive conference, the honeymoon period can end quickly for even a proven head coach. Meyer quickly established himself as a wunderkind at Bowling Green and Utah, but his grace period at UF lasted four games. Meyers next game on the Gators sideline was a 31-3 beat-down at Alabama. Following a 21-17 loss two weeks later at LSU, the 41-yearold broke down in tears during the post-game press conference. Saban had left LSU the previous season to coach the Miami Dolphins. After two seasons, he returned to the college game, at Alabama „ then a shell of the program that long had been the SECs gold standard. This week, Saban recalled the trials and tribulations of the 2007 season. That year, which included four losses to end the regular season, was anything but a harbinger of the unprecedented run of success to follow. We werent very good our “rst year here,Ž Saban said. We were 6-6 and had lots of issues, lots of players suspended, lost to ULM (University of Louisiana-Monroe). I mean, I could go through a litany of things that were very, very dif“cult. Then the next year, we were a lot better.Ž In 2009, the Crimson Tide team followed a 12-win season with its “rst of “ve national titles because, Saban said, he would not compromise his principles or his vision for the program during Year 1. It doesnt happen overnight,Ž he said. You have to stick with your guns.Ž Following his late November hiring, Mullen set an uncompromising course for the Gators. Mullen demanded more of his players during the off-season conditioning program and in the classroom, punishing players for skipping class or tutoring sessions. But Mullen and his staff also facilitated team bonding with cookouts, movie nights and even a bowling trip during the dog days of preseason camp in August. Thats just like little things, like team chemistry, you can build that so thats good,Ž junior tailback Lamical Perine said. Like we really never did nothing like that when Ive been here.Ž Fun and games have their limits with Mullen. Following last weeks Kentucky loss, Mullen questioned his teams toughness and vowed to push them even harder at practice. For the second straight game, Mullen sat senior pass rusher CeCe Jefferson due to academics. Jefferson is a team leader the Gators could have used on a night when the defense struggled. On Monday, Mullen said Jefferson likely would play against CSU, but added a caveat. We got pretty high standard now in this program for guys,Ž Mullen said. Its only Monday. Well see.Ž The message of a new coach, though, can fall on deaf ears. Gaining buy-in from players can be a long process. Its a daily struggle sometimes, because its not the way theyre used to doing things,Ž Smart said. And sometimes, they may not have the faith and trust and con“dence that the way youre doing things is correct.Ž Losing never helps. A 17-16 home loss to Vanderbilt in Smarts fourth SEC game was not exactly what Georgia of“cials had in mind when hiring Sabans longtime defensive coordinator to replace Richt. Two weeks later, Smarts Bulldogs lost to longtime Richt nemesis Florida. But Smarts squad would rally for four wins in “ve games, including a Liberty Bowl win against TCU. The next season, Georgia won the SEC and lost in overtime to Alabama in the national title game. The end of the season and the momentum in the bowl game and bowl practices were what was really key for us,Ž Smart said of 2016. Going and playing TCU and beating them and having kids understand thats the way were going to do things, that propelled our off-season, which in turn helped with the season we had the second year.Ž Though just entering Week 3 at UF, Mullen can draw from his experiences at Mississippi State to know how to handle what inevitably lies ahead. The 2009 Bulldogs were coming off a 4-8 season under Sylvester Croom faced the nations toughest schedule. Mullens squad suffered one-sided losses to Auburn and Alabama, but also hung tough with top-ranked Florida, before losing 29-19 en route to a 5-7 “nish. Mullen, just 37 at the time, said he let his emotions get the best of him, eventually leading school of“cials and former SEC commissioner Mike Slive to intercede. Id ”y off the hook on everything,Ž Mullen recalled. Im like, Boy we lost this game. Im screaming at the of“cials, Im complaining about that and Im complaining about this. I remember Mike calling me. Everybody in the worlds got problems. Successful people gave solutions, and our guys, weve got to go out on the “eld today and “nd solution and “x our problem, and said, Hey, just step back and look at yourself. Is that the image you want, is that helping you build a program, is that making you a better team? Is that the image of your program? I think Ive learned from those mistakes.Ž More lessons remain for the Gators. That much is certain this season. The key is to learn from them, like Mullen and many of the games top coaches have. Everybody in the worlds got problems,Ž Mullen said. Successful people have solutions. And our guys, weve got to go out on the “eld and “nd solutions and “x our problems.ŽDan Mullen, games top coaches know challenges of debut seasons at new schools By JOHN KEKISAP SPORTS WRITERSYRACUSE, N.Y. „ Tommy DeVito scored on a 3-yard run and hit tight end Ravian Pierce with a 3-yard score, and Syracuse overcame an injury to starting quarterback Eric Dungey to beat Florida State 30-7 on Saturday in the sweltering heat of the Carrier Dome. Dungey was hurt late in the second quarter after a late hit to the helmet and never returned as the Orange took a slim 6-0 lead into the break. Last year in Tallahassee, Dungey suffered a broken right foot on the Oranges fourth play from scrimmage, sat out most of the “rst half, and returned to nearly lead Syracuse to an upset. He accounted for 387 yards of Syracuses offense and all three touchdowns, but the Seminoles escaped with a 27-24 victory. Dungey, the teams “ery leader, never returned on this day and it didnt matter as DeVito, a redshirt freshman with scant experience, exhibited great poise in guiding the Orange (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) in the second half as they snapped a “ve-game conference losing streak. Florida State (1-2, 0-2) “nished with 240 yards offensively and prevented the shutout on a 2-yard run by quarterback Deondre Francois with 6:16 to play. The Seminoles were 4-0 in the Carrier Dome entering the game and had won 10 straight games in the series since 1966. DeVito had completions of 33 yards to Jamal Custis and hit Pierce with a swing pass for 22 more before scoring his “rst career touchdown on a keeper up the middle midway through the third quarter. DeVito, who “nished 11 of 16 for 144 yards and no turnovers, gave the Orange a commanding 20-0 lead with his toss to Pierce with 3:33 left in the third. FSU had not allowed a point in the third quarter and just 10 second-half points in splitting the “rst two games against then-No. 20 Virginia Tech and FCS foe Samford. Defensively, Syracuse put the clamps on Francois, who “nished 18 of 36 for 178 yards passing with one interception and was sacked four times. Cam Akers led the Seminoles on the ground with 52 yards on 10 carries. FSU “nished with just 62 yards rushing. Dungey was knocked out of the game after a helmet-to-helmet hit while he was on the turf at the end of a run. A personal foul was assessed and DeVito entered. He hit Custis along the right side for 16 yards to set up a “rst-and-goal at the 1, but the Florida State defense stuffed Dontae Strickland on three straight running plays over left tackle, forcing a 19-yard “eld goal by Andre Szmyt. Francois got untracked on the “nal possession of the half and hit Nyqwan Murray for gains of 20 and 16 yards, threading the needle both times among several Orange defenders. But time expired with the Seminoles inside the red zone and the second half was a bust. Strickland scored on a 13-yard run late in the fourth to complete the scoring.THE TAKEAWAYFlorida State: The Seminoles have fallen on hard times under “rstyear coach Willie Taggart. The offense has sputtered every game. Francois, who missed most of last season with an injury, has only clicked in spurts and the run game has been dismal behind an offensive line thats trying to “nd itself. Syracuse: The Orange are unbeaten and seem poised to “nally break out of the rut that has seen them “nish 4-8 three straight times. Even if Dungey misses more games, DeVito proved hes a capable backup against a foe with a storied past.Syracuse beats Florida State 30-7 behind DeVito AP PHOTOFlorida States Camren McDonald, left, looks to tackle Syracuses Antwan Cordy, right, in the “rst quarter of an NCAA college football game in Syracuse, N.Y., Saturday. CFB: New coaches CFB: Syracuse 30; Florida 7 CFB: Alabama 62; Mississippi 7 By DAVID BRANDTAP SPORTS WRITEROXFORD, Miss. (AP) „ Tua Tagovailoa threw for 191 yards and two touchdowns, Jerry Jeudy caught two scoring passes and No. 1 Alabama buried Mississippi 62-7 on Saturday night. Alabama (3-0) gave up a touchdown on the “rst play of the Southeastern Conference opener, but responded by scoring the next 62 points. The Tides offense had 516 total yards and was so effective that Tagovailoas evening was over by midway through the second quarter. The left-handed sophomore completed 11 of 15 passes during his short time on the “eld. The Tide then turned to Jalen Hurts, who completed 7 of 10 passes for 85 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. It was so lopsided that third-string quarterback Mac Jones was in the game before the end of the third quarter. Ole Miss (2-1, 0-1) suffered through a second straight blowout loss to the Crimson Tide. The Rebels fell 66-3 last year in Tuscaloosa. Jordan Taamu completed just 7 of 22 passes for 133 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. The game was in doubt for about 11 seconds. Thats the time it took for Taamu to “nd D.K. Metcalf for a 75-yard touchdown on the “rst play of the game. Ole Miss had a 7-0 lead and a packed VaughtHemingway Stadium was rocking. Alabama wouldnt be fooled again. The Tide scored 49 points by halftime, doing whatever it wanted against the Ole Miss defense. There were plenty of clues the Rebels would struggle to slow down the Tide „ including giving up 629 total yards to Southern Illinois last week „ but the onslaught was still stunning.THE TAKEAWAYVery few people expected Ole Miss to win this game, but a decently close outcome might have built some con“dence for the Rebels. Obviously, that didnt happen. The Ole Miss defense has been brutal through three games this season and the offense „ other than the “rst 75-yard touchdown „ looked out of sync. The Rebels will try to regroup next week against Kent State. Alabama breezed to its “rst win of the season, and its most impressive feat was slowing down an Ole Miss offense that looked so good for the seasons “rst two weeks. The secondary was burned on the opening play, but when Ole Miss tried another deep ball on the next drive, Trevon Diggs knocked it away and the Tide cruised to a dominant performance.UP NEXTOle Miss hosts Kent State next Saturday.

The Sun | Sunday, September 16, 2018 SP Page 7By JOHN ZENORAP SPORTS WRITERAUBURN, Ala. „ LSU coach Ed Orgeron insisted he had no doubt Cole Tracy would make the winning kick, but setting it up was quite the adventure. Tracy kicked a 42-yard “eld goal on the “nal play to give No. 12 LSU a 22-21 victory over No. 7 Auburn on Saturday in their Southeastern Conference opener. Joe Burrow led LSU (3-0) down the “eld in the “nal minutes with clutch plays and two pass interference calls against Auburn (2-1). That set up Tracys “eld goal that was almost right down the middle and sent LSU players swarming onto the “eld to celebrate. There was no question in my mind that he was going to make this “eld goal,Ž Orgeron said. It worked out perfect.Ž It capped a wild fourth quarter in a rivalry that has produced many of them. Burrow hit Derrick Dillon over the outstretched arms of Auburn linebacker Deshaun Davis for a 71-yard touchdown strike with 8:18 left. Burrows two-point attempt failed, leaving Auburn up 21-19. The LSU defense held to set up another chance with 5:38 remaining. The result was a 14-play, 52-yard drive and Tracys kick. I knew on Monday that it was going to come down to this,Ž Tracy said. Once we got past Southeastern (Louisiana), you know that when youre playing at Auburn, its going to be a close game.Ž A pass interference call against Jeremiah Dinson on third-and-11 kept the drive alive. Then Burrow hit Stephen Sullivan for 9 yards on fourth-and-7 to keep the offense on the “eld. Another interference call, against Jamel Dean, got LSU into “eld goal position. When you get put out at the end of the game in that situation, youve got to shut it down,Ž Auburn defensive lineman Derrick Brown said of the defenses mind-set. Burrow held his own against Auburns more heralded Jarrett Stidham. He completed 15 of 34 passes for 249 yards, with Justin Jefferson gaining 97 yards on “ve catches. Stidham was 16 of 28 for 198 yards and a touchdown but threw two interceptions. JaTarvious Whitlow ran for 104 yards on 22 carries. Auburns Anders Carlson missed a 52yard “eld goal attempt wide left with nearly 13 minutes left. The loss snapped a 13-game home winning streak dating back to the 2016 LSU game. LSU, which trailed 21-10 in the second half after scoring the “rst 10 points, overcame a 20-0 de“cit against Auburn to win last season. It was a dog“ght from the get-go,Ž Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. We had the turnover early and they got the score. We got behind but dug ourselves out of the hole with a halftime lead. Third quarter we were doing a good job. We were close to getting some distance with a chance to put the game away. We didnt make the plays to do that.ŽTHE TAKEAWAYLSU: Struggled to sustain solid start offensively after outgaining 188-63 in building the 10-0 lead. But kept coming back to secure its second win over a Top 10 opponent after opening with a victory over then-No. 8 Miami. Auburn: Stidham started out 0-for-4 passing with an interception on his “rst attempt, but regrouped nicely. Auburn couldnt produce late against a tough LSU defense, creating an uphill battle for a second straight SEC West title.PENALTIES GALOREBoth teams were flagged for nine penalties, 111 yards for Auburn and 91 for LSU. There was some tough ones,Ž Malzahn said.POLL IMPLICATIONSLSU will almost certainly climb into the Top 10 while Auburn doesnt figure to fall too far.TARGETINGLSU safety John Battle was ejected after a targeting call early in the fourth quarter. He made a helmet-to-helmet hit on Anthony Schwartz.UP NEXTLSU gets a break from SEC games with a visit from Louisiana Tech.

The Tigers turned the ball over three times and missed a pair of “eld goals but remained in control thanks to a dominant defensive effort. Georgia Southern managed only one “rst down in the “rst half and the Tigers scored 21 points in the second quarter to take a 21-0 lead at the break. Starting quarterback Kelly Bryant was injured late in the second quarter and did not return. No update on his status was made available during the game. The decision to move the start time up from 3:30 p.m. to noon due to Hurricane Florence worked out well as nearly 80,000 fans were on hand to watch No. 2 Clemson on a windy but otherwise “ne day. Freshman Trevor Lawrence played most of the second half and “nished 12-for-19 for 194 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the victory.Murray and No. 5 Oklahoma hold off Iowa State 37-27AMES, Iowa (AP) „ Kyler Murray threw for 348 yards and three touchdowns and No. 5 Oklahoma held off Iowa State 37-27 on Saturday in the Big 12 opener for both teams. Marquise Brown had 191 yards receiving and a TD for the Sooners (3-0, 1-0 Big 12), who extended the nations longest road winning streak to 17 games while avenging a stunning home loss to the Cyclones a year ago. Iowa State (0-2, 0-1) didnt make it easy for the Sooners, rallying from a 14-point de“cit to make it 34-27 late in the third quarter. But the Sooners killed nearly eight minutes on a drive that ended with a 42-yard “eld goal from Austin Siebert with 2:51 left, and Parnell Motleys interception with 1:11 to go sealed. Iowa States a good team. You give them any room, theyre going to capitalize on it. Theyre a tough out,Ž Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said. Backup Zeb Noland threw for a career-high 360 yards and a pair of long touchdown passes to Hakeem Butler for the Cyclones (0-2, 0-1), who were without starting quarterback Kyle Kempt (knee). Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said Kempt will also miss next weeks game.No. 3 Georgia routs Middle Tennessee, 49-7ATHENS, Ga. „ Georgia continued its early-season dominance Saturday afternoon at Sanford Stadium, adding an annihilation of Middle Tennessee to its list of one-sided victories. The No. 3-ranked Bulldogs built a 42-7 lead by halftime and went on to a 49-7 win over the Blue Raiders, an overmatched Conference USA team that will be paid $1.7 million by the UGA Athletic Association for making the trip to Athens. Georgia has beaten its “rst three opponents this season by a cumulative margin of 135-24, with a 45-0 win over Austin Peay and a 41-17 win over South Carolina preceding Saturdays rout. Highlights in Georgias latest win included two touchdowns by Mecole Hardman, one on a 5-yard reception and the other on a 70-yard punt return. Georgia set the tone by scoring the “rst time it had the ball Saturday, with a career-long 66-yard run by tailback Elijah Holy“eld accounting for most of the game-opening seven-play, 87-yard drive. Quarterback Jake Fromm completed the drive with the 5-yard throw to Hardman. An interception and 26-yard return by Georgia defensive back Deandre Baker set up the next touchdown, which came with four minutes left in the “rst quarter on an 11-yard pass from Fromm to a wide-open Jeremiah Holloman in the end zone. The game turned into a rout of extreme proportions when Georgia scored four touchdowns in the second quarter. On the “rst play of the quarter, a 56-yard run by wide receiver Tyler Simmons on a jet-sweep play „ his “rst career touchdown „ capped a six-play, 94-yard drive quarterbacked by freshman Justin Fields. Next, Hardmans 70yard punt return „ his “rst career punt return for a touchdown „ stretched the Bulldogs lead to 28-0. Middle Tennessee briefly interrupted the Georgia onslaught when quarterback Brent Stockstill threw a short pass in the right ”at to Patrick Smith, who broke free for a 41-yard score. That trimmed Georgias lead to 28-7 with 4:21 left in the half. But the Bulldogs quickly resumed the “repower. Riley Ridley caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Fromm, three plays after Fromm connected with Holloman on a 65-yard deep ball to the 14-yard line. And “nally, with less than a minute to go in the half, Fields scored on a 15-yard run. The 42 “rst-half points were Georgias most since scoring 45 in the “rst two quarters against Troy in 2014. Georgias offense piled up 382 yards „ 217 rushing and 165 passing „ in the “rst half Saturday. Holy“eld had an even 100 yards rushing in the half on eight carries. Fromm completed 10 of 12 passes for 128 yards and three touchdowns in the half.Canada runs for 2 scores, BYU upsets No. 6 Wisconsin 24-21MADISON, Wis. (AP) „ BYU coach Kalani Sitake viewed Wisconsins brand of smashmouth football as a blueprint for success. The Cougars followed the plan to perfection Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium. Squally Canada ran for 118 yards and two touchdowns and BYU handed mistake-prone Wisconsin its “rst nonconference home loss since 2003 with a 24-21 victory. BYU gave sixth-ranked Wisconsin “ts on motion plays and sweeps. The Cougars (2-1) tossed in a trick play too, when receiver Aleva Hifo found open tight end Moroni Laulu-Pututau for a 31yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. Sitake was so happy with the toughness of his team that he gave the game ball to his strength and conditioning coaches. I talked about how much I admire the (Wisconsin) program, the tradition and the smashmouth football that they play,Ž Sitake said. But (BYUs) players were gritty and they played hard and with a lot of toughness.Ž Wisconsin (2-1) had one last chance to avoid an upset with a drive that started with 3:55 left at the 8. But normally reliable senior kicker Rafael Gaglianones 42-yard “eld goal attempt to tie with 41 seconds left went wide left BYU! BYU!Ž yelled the small contingent of Cougars fans in the stands. BYUs last victory over a top-10 team came in 2009 with a 14-13 win over third-ranked Oklahoma. We just wanted to win the line of scrimmage and be physical,Ž Sitake said. The Badgers 41-game nonconference winning streak „ the longest active in the nation „ came to an end. Their hopes to make the College Football Playoff probably did, too. Win as a team and everyone can own their part equally in a loss,Ž Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said. Skyler Southams 45yard “eld goal with 9:58 left, set up by Canadas 46-yard run on the “rst play of a “ve-play drive, gave BYU the lead for good, 24-21. The Cougars punched right back after Wisconsin tied the game at 21 on Taiwan Deals 5-yard touchdown run with 12:43 to go. They out-executed us,Ž Badgers linebacker T.J. Edwards said. Wisconsins last nonconference loss at home was to UNLV, 23-5 on Sept. 13, 2003.Singletary has 5 TDs as FAU rolls over BethuneCookman 49-28BOCA RATON, Fla. „ Devin Singletary stormed in for a school record “ve rushing touchdowns in the “rst half as Florida Atlantic jumped out to an early lead and coasted to a 49-28 victory over Bethune-Cookman on Saturday. Singletary had 50 yards rushing in the “rst half and got the call every time the Owls were near the goal line, with his longest scoring run coming from the 18, as Florida Atlantic (2-1) led 29-0 in the “rst quarter. They were up 36-14 at the half. Singletary, who has had a rushing touchdown in 16 straight games, now owns the C-USA record for consecutive games with a rushing TD. Louisiana Techs Kenneth Dixon held the old mark during the 2014-15 seasons. Kerrith Whyte Jr. ran for 100 yards as FAU totaled 376 yards rushing while amassing 559 total yards. The Owls are 2-1 for the “rst time since the 2007 season. Chris Robinson hit Jovon Durante with a 10yard TD pass early in the third quarter for FAUs “rst score that did not involve Singletary. Akevious Williams threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns for BethuneCookman (1-2).Clemson avoids poor weather, tops Georgia Southern to remain unbeaten AP PHOTOSClemsons Hunter Renfrow (13) avoids the tackle attempt by Georgia Southerns Jay Bowdry (5) with blocking help from Garrett Williams (44) during the “rst half of an NCAA college football game, Saturday, in Clemson, S.C. Clemson won 38-7. Georgia wide receiver Mecole Hardman (4) tries to break free from Middle Tennessee cornerback Darryl Randolph (29) in the “rst half of an NCAA college football game Saturday in Athens, Ga.

It was 21-7 at halftime, and the Hurricanes had plenty of answers when Toledo made a game of it in the third quarter. DeeJay Dallas ran for a 19-yard TD to put Miami up 28-14, and Rosiers 5-yard scoring pass to Lawrence Cager made it 35-21. The Rockets settled for a “eld goal on their next drive, and Rosier broke free for a 37-yard touchdown run to make it 42-24 with 12:18 remaining in the game. Dallas “nished with 110 yards on 17 carries.THE TAKEAWAYMiami: The Hurricanes are “ghting an uphill battle to get back in the national title picture after a season-opening loss to LSU. They have an obvious concern if Johnsons injury turns out to be a nagging one, but Rosier and Thomas were more than Toledos defense could handle. Toledo: The Rockets arent seeking moral victories. Theyve beaten teams such as Arkansas and Iowa State in the past few years, and they obviously hoped for a better showing against Miami. This was still anyones game in the third quarter, but not so much in the fourth.POLL IMPLICATIONSTeams like Miami dont play road games like this very often. Theres a lot to lose and not much to gain, but it will be interesting to see if voters reward the Hurricanes for a convincing road win over a strong MAC program.UP NEXTMiami: Hosts Florida International next Saturday. Toledo: Hosts Nevada next Saturday.MIAMIFROM PAGE 1 Freshman Dameon Pierce ran mostly untouched for a 68-yard score late in the game and “nished with 87 yards on the ground. K.J. Carta-Samuels was 21-of-34 passing for 217 yards and a score. Collin Hill replaced him in the fourth quarter. The Rams lost three of their four fumbles and also missed two “eld goals.THE TAKEAWAYColorado State: Gets the largest single-game guarantee that any school has ever paid another, a huge payday to come cross-country and play in draining heat and humidity. The Gators still owe the Rams $1 million of the $3 million they agreed to pay to lure McElwain from Fort Collins in 2014. Florida: Got a much-needed victory, but showed little, if any, progress on both lines of scrimmage. Kentucky dominated the Gators in the trenches in their Southeastern Conference opener last week.STILL SIDELINEDFlorida linebacker David Reese, who led the team in tackles in 2017, missed his third consecutive game because of a knee injury. Reese was hurt during fall practice, and coach Dan Mullen talked earlier this week like Reese would make his debut. Senior defensive end CeCe Jefferson made his debut. He missed the “rst games of the season because of academic issues.UP NEXTColorado State: After playing consecutive SEC teams, the Rams host Illinois State of the Football Championship Subdivision next Saturday. Florida: Plays its “rst road game of the season at Tennessee next Saturday. Its the “rst of seven straight SEC games for the Gators.FLORIDAFROM PAGE 1 South Florida, which scored 49 points in a win against Georgia Tech last, week, answered with a 75-yard drive. Cronkrite went in from the 3 to tie it at 7, but the Illini defense held for the rest of the half and forced interceptions by Jartavius Martin and DelShawn Phillips, which set up field goals by McLaughlin. McLaughlin connected again from 41 yards, banging off the right upright, capping a 10-play, 53-yard drive late in the third quarter to extend the lead to 19-7. Rivers, in his first career start as quarterback, was 20 of 29 for 168 yards passing for Illinois (2-1). Rivers relieved A.J. Bush Jr., who was injured in the win against Western Illinois. Last year we played South Florida, we werent really competitive,Ž Smith said. This year is a completely different game.
